Replacing Coffee in recipes

 Replacing coffee in recipes

Coffee is a common ingredient in any variety of recipes nowadays; it is used in recipes for cakes, appetizers, main dishes and more. For those of us who stay away from coffee, this can be a bit of a challenge. With a few tips for replacing coffee in your cooking, you will have the tools to tackle any recipe that comes your way.

When coffee is in its liquid form, it's fairly easy to replace. You can simply substitute any equal amount of liquid like water. If a recipe calls for brewed coffee, it is pretty much the same as flavored water. So, if you would like your chocolate cake to have a hint of raspberry flavoring instead, brew a raspberry herbal tea or measure the same amount of water with a few drops of flavored extract and add that to your recipe instead of coffee. 

A common consensus on cooking blogs and websites is that chocolate is the best flavor substitute for coffee. For a liquid substitution, you can dissolve some high-quality cocoa powder into water and add it to your recipe. For dry coffee, try Pero - a malted barley drink powder that mimics real coffee flavor but is completely caffeine free.
