Coffee Pairings


We have enjoyed sharing our Monday coffee recipes so much that we have decided to expand our horizons with a new once a month series of dessert and breakfast recipes! But, these aren’t just any old recipes. We have hand selected easy to prepare, simple treats that pair well with, you guessed it…Kcup coffee! Not only will we include a delicious recipe but, we will suggest a Keurig Kcup coffee to enjoy with it for optimal taste!

Up this week and oldie but a goodie…classic buttermilk pancakes.

Basic Buttermilk Pancake recipe

What goes better with coffee than pancakes…nothing that’s what!  Nothin’ fancy here just a good old fashioned buttermilk pancake…like grandma used to make!

You will need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup buttermilk powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons oil

In a medium bowl, mix together the flour and buttermilk powder. Add in the baking soda, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Add in the egg, water, and oil. Mix together with a whisk until all ingredients are incorporated. Do not overmix, some lumps are ok in the batter.

Warm up a griddle or a greased frying pan. Drop the mixture by 1/3 cup measurements onto the hot griddle. Flip to the other side when the mixture starts to bubble. Cook each side until golden brown.

I would like to recommend two Kcup coffees to enjoy with your delicious buttermilk pancakes.  First and foremost, Golden French Toast would provide an amazing taste combination but, unfortunately it is not always around (why Green Mountain why?!). Don’t worry Donut House Collection Cinnamon Roll will do the trick just as well!

Coffee and Dessert Pairings


We have enjoyed sharing our Monday coffee recipes so much that we have decided to expand our horizons with a new once a month series of dessert recipes! But, these aren’t just any old desserts. We have hand selected easy to prepare, simple recipes that pair well with, you guessed it…Kcup coffee! Not only will we include a delicious dessert recipe but, we will suggest a Keurig Kcup coffee to enjoy with it for optimal taste!

With out further ado please welcome our first amazing dessert…Apple Cream Cheese Crescents:

Apple Cream Cheese Crescent Recipe

Isn’t she beautiful?! This little baby is so easy to make with BIG taste results.  Perfect to whip up for the last-minute guest or a Sunday morning treat.

You will need:

  • 1 container of refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/8 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/8 cup applesauce
  • Butterscotch Chips (optional)

Remove the crescent rolls from the container and separate into individual pieces of dough triangles.

Soften the cream cheese in the microwave so it is east to spread.

Place a very small drop of cream cheese and applesauce (about 1 teaspoon or less of each) on the large end of each crescent roll triangle. Roll up towards the small end, shape, and place on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

If desired, melt the butterscotch chips and drizzle over the finished product.

How easy is that? No baking skill required here!

There are quite a few taste combinations involved in Apple Cream Cheese Crescents all coming together in a perfect marriage. For that reason, we would suggest a traditional roast coffee rather than a flavored.  Why try to top perfection by adding yet another dimension to the mix.  Stick with a medium roast, non flavored coffee and your taste buds will thank you.

We recommend Wolfgang Puck Breakfast in Bed Keurig Kcup coffee to pair with this delectable crescent.
