Wait...don't read the whole blog yet. Hit play on The Coffee Song. It'll set the mood.

It's National Coffee Day!

I wanted to do something special to honor National Coffee Day, so this past Sunday, I deep fried some coffee! Here's what you'll need...

Get one pound cake (I bought Sara Lee from the freezer section), 12 oz. of your favorite flavored coffee beverage, and a deep fryer.

Slice up the pound cake. Pour the coffee drink over the pound cake (about a minute before deep frying). Deep fry it for a few minutes. Let it cool a bit. Eat it.


I'm not sure it's worth all the trouble, but hey, you can say you deep fried coffee, and that is worth all the trouble.


  • It's possible it would have been much tastier with fresh oil. We popped 'em in at the end of Fry Fest, and the dirty oil may have negatively contributed to the taste (or positively, who knows?).
  • Do not leave container of sliced pound cake out for all to see. It is impossible to resist pound cake, and your friends will eat it. They have to. It's the pound cake law.
  • I'll bet it'd taste great with the new Starbucks Toasted Graham Latte, which is s'posed to taste like cereal milk, but I just couldn't bring myself to deal with the pretentious sizing and barista, so, instead, I went to small drive thru.
