When it comes to coffee, it’s all about the buzz. We’re talking about that rise-and-shine jolt from a strong cup of coffee, aromatic and warm against your hand—or chilled, that’s cool too. What could be better?

Dessert, you say? Well, we concede. The addition of coffee takes sweet desserts to new heights, offering the slightly bitter, yet earthy contrast of strong coffee flavor against traditionally sugary-sweet dessert ingredients.

In honor of National Coffee Day—this year officially on September 29th—we’re celebrating with a collection of 15 of our favorite coffee-infused dessert recipes from the Relish recipe archives. Plus, we’re offering a bonus round-up of coffee cakes that are made without coffee, but will perfectly complement a cup or two, however you take it.
