I decided to create a Pecan Coffee Cake. I paired the coffee cake with Peet's Cafe Domingo Coffee. The coffee is smooth, balanced and medium-bodied. I thought it would pair well with the coffee cake. I decided to add a tablespoon of the ground coffee to the coffee cake mixture to give it a slight coffee taste. The coffee cake is quite delicious and it goes well with Peet's Cafe Domingo coffee.

Here is the recipe to my Pecan Coffee Cake:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon Peet's Cafe Domingo Coffee grounds
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x13 inch pan with aluminum foil, and lightly grease with vegetable oil or cooking spray. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in sour cream, then beat in sugar and Peet's Cafe Domingo Coffee grounds. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. By hand, fold in the flour mixture, mixing just until incorporated. Spread batter into prepared pan.
- To make the Pecan Topping: In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon. Stir in melted butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over cake batter in pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack, and remove foil.
