    I believe that all bread that use pre-fermented dough will come out soft and fluffy. The aroma of coffee from the bread will no doubt makes one reach for more. Thank you for sharing with us yet another wonderful recipe Victoria.

    Good morning Vic,
    Yes, I agree with Veronica, I do believe that too. Pre-fermented dough bread always turn out soft and nice. This bread. Lovely coffee loaf with almond topping. This will so good to go with a cuppa of coffee 🙂

    Hi Victoria. Thanks for your awesome bread recipes. I have the 3 in 1 coffee powder which contains sugar and. Creamer but your 2 in 1 besides coffee does it has sugar or creamer?? Otherwise can I just use instant coffee 12 gm. Hope for your clarification

    • Victoria Bakes (April 21, 2015)

      Hi, not sure where u r based, but in general when 2 in 1 is mentioned in recipes, it is coffee with creamer. If its coffee with sugar, we will not use 2 in 1. Just coffee powder and sugar. Pls do not substitute with coffee powder and stick with recipe. Otherwise 3 in 1 is preferred.

  • chloe (April 21, 2015)

    Hi Victoria
    Thanks. I will use the 2 in 1.
