Featured ingredient: Chocolate Caramel Truffle Coffee 10 oz. Ground

    • 15.25 ounce Triple Chocolate Fudge cake mix
    • 10 large eggs - divided usage
    • ¼ cup vegetable oil
    • 2-3/4 cups double-strength brewed Door County Chocolate Caramel Truffle Coffee - divided usage
    • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
    • 14 ounces evaporated milk
    • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla
    • 2 cups caramel topping
    • Sea Salt - Optional for finishing


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cake mix, 2 eggs, oil and ¾ cup brewed Door County Chocolate Caramel Truffle Coffee. Beat with a mixer until evenly combined and batter is smooth; set aside
  3. In a blender, add remaining 8 eggs, 1 cup brewed Door County Chocolate Caramel Truffle Coffee, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and the vanilla. Mix on high speed 1 minute and refrigerate until needed
  4. Mix together the caramel topping with the remaining 1 cup of brewed Door County Chocolate Caramel Truffle Coffee. Pour 2 teaspoons caramel/coffee mixture into the bottom of 12 ungreased custard cups, followed by 1/3 cup of the cake batter (I used an ice cream scooper). Fill custard cups to the top with egg mixture
  5. Place custard cups into a large rectangle shaped baking dish. Fill baking dish hallway full with hot water with being very careful not to burn you or spill the hot water. I used a funnel to guide the water into the pan without splashing it into any of the prepared custard cups
  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Using a knife, cut around each custard cup and immediately invert onto a plate. Use the remaining coffee caramel to decorate your dessert plates. If desired, sprinkle each dessert with sea salt and proudly serve
