You guys, it’s here! It’s here! Fall is here!! Can you tell I am excited? Fall is my favorite season. It has always been my favorite season.
I love the cool crisp air. The vibrant orange and yellow leaves against the bright blue skies. I love all the holidays. I love football. And honestly, I also love the rain. That is probably directly related to growing up in the Pacific Northwest.
And when it’s raining, as it so often does here in Seattle, I love cuddling up on the couch with a good book and a hot decadent coffee drink.
Decadent hot coffee drinks like this Caramel Coffee Cake Latte. The Caramel Coffee Cake flavor comes from Dunkin Donuts Caramel Coffee Cake Coffee. One whiff of this coffee brewing and I couldn’t wait to try it. My whole kitchen smelled like sweet coffee cake.
And as good as the coffee is on its own, it’s even better in a latte.
Some of you may be like, ok Des, I don’t have a fancy espresso machine at home. I’m not an expert, how do I make a latte at home? But guess what you don’t need one. Simply brew a strong batch of your favorite Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, use a simple trick to make your own milk foam and voila you’ve got yourself DIY latte.
The key to a latte is the milk foam. It’s my favorite part. And if you have an espresso machine you can do it with the frother. But all you need is a mason jar to do it yourself. Simply shake the milk until frothy and microwave it. While heating the foam will separate from the milk. You can then pour the steamed milk into the coffee and spoon the milk foam over the top.
Pretty easy huh?
So as the days get shorter, the gets air cooler and there are some rainy afternoons, take just a few minutes of your afternoon to treat yourself to this Caramel Coffee Cake Latte.

Hi Des, Nice recipe. I am longing to try this cake for my daughter’s birthday in a couple of days because she loves anything caramel but I can’t seem to find the recipe for the caramel sauce that you use. Can you please advise on that.
