If you’re looking to brew up something delicious this World Coffee Day at home, we’ve got three easy latte recipes for you to try!
This Friday 01 October 2021 marks the day in which coffee lovers around the world sit back, celebrate and sip their way through their favourite brew. It’s World Coffee Day, and if you live by the mantra that ‘you’ll start working when your coffee does’, then we’ve got some delicious news for you.
As we get ready to praise our favourite morning starter or afternoon pick-me-up, we’ve partnered with the legends over at MILKLAB – Australia’s favourite barista milk for coffee – to share with you three, flavoured latte recipes for you to make at home. Created by the TikTok team, Golden Brown Coffee (over 1 million likes and counting), these three delicious latte recipes are dessert-inspired and, the perfect homemade treat.
“Everyone’s lives are so chaotic. It’s nice to have a few minutes each morning where you can just take the time to slow down, focus on yourself, and on making a cup of coffee,” said the Golden Brown team.
“The great thing is no two coffees are the same and you can never make a perfect cup. So, each day is the opportunity to make it a little bit better and experience something new. People are brewing at home more than ever and we want to help them make the best coffee possible.”
So if you’re ready to get creative and enjoy a new coffee recipe, let’s get brewing!
Lamington Oat Milk Latte
350mL MILKLAB Oat Milk
Raspberry Jam Sauce
1. Generously rim the top of your glass with thick chocolate sauce. On a plate, spread your shredded coconut and then dip the top of your glass, coating the chocolate in coconut.
2. Take your raspberry jam sauce and drizzle it on the inside of your glass in a circular motion so it runs down the side. Place a shot of espresso in your glass.
3. Then, add 2 tablespoons of chocolate sauce to your MILKLAB Oat Milk, and steam the milk until it reaches your preferred temperature. You can also heat your oat milk over the stove.
4. Fill up your glass with the chocolatey oat milk, and finish it off with a dusting of chocolate powder.
Lavender Oat Milk Latte Recipe
Milk Lab Oat Milk
1 tbsp culinary lavender
1 shot espresso
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Purple food dye (optional)
1. In a pot over medium heat, add your water, sugar and lavender and bring to a low boil. Then lower the heat and let simmer for one minute or until the sugar is dissolved.
2. Then take it off the heat and let steep for 20 minutes. You don’t want to leave it too long or it will be too overpowering. Strain it into a jar to store.
3. In a coffee cup, add 1 tablespoon of your lavender simple syrup and add a shot of espresso. Then, fill your milk jug with oat milk and steam it to your preferred temperature.
4. With your purple food colouring draw a line from the centre of your milk to the back, drawing it away from the tip. Then when you pour it should create a vibrant line of purple on the top of your milk. Alternatively, you can add a drop of food dye to the milk before steaming to create a light lavender colour.
5. Dress the drink with some of your dried lavender.
Pancake Oat Milk Latte Recipe
For the Drink:
350mL of MILKLAB Oat Milk
Double shot of espresso
For the Pancake:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
2 large eggs
2 tbsp of butter
1 1⁄4 cups MILKLAB Oat Milk
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
Butter for pan
1. In a mixing bowl, sift your flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Then whisk to combine.
2. Melt your butter in a saucepan. Then, in another mixing bowl, whisk your eggs, and slowly add your warm butter. Make sure the butter isn’t too hot or it will cook the eggs. Then add your oat milk as you whisk together.
3. Slowly add your dry mix into your wet mix and whisk to combine. You don’t want to over mix and a few clumps is actually good! It helps make the pancakes fluffy!
4. Then melt some butter in a pan over medium heat and add 3 small scoops of pancake mixture. They should be big enough to sit on top of your glass. Cook for around 3 minutes, until you see browning on the edge and bubbles on the top. Then flip and cook for a further two minutes. Remove from the pan and place to the side.
5. Extract a double shot of your favourite coffee in a glass.
6. Then, add a 1 tbsp of maple syrup to your MILKLAB Oat Milk and steam until you reach your preferred temperature. You can also heat your milk over the stove.
7. Pour the milk over your double shot of espresso and fill the glass. Stack the cooked pancakes on top of your coffee and dress them with your favourite berries.
8. Finish your drink with a generous drizzle of maple syrup and you’re done.
6 Tips on How to Use Oat Milk in Your Coffee:
1. Allow more air in before you start steaming – more than you would with full cream milk.
2. Start with cold milk so you can steam for longer.
3. Let your milk sit for 20 seconds after steaming and then give it a swirl before pouring.
4. Don’t allow air in your milk throughout the steaming process, only at the start.
5. Don’t steam for the same amount of time as dairy, oat milk heats up quicker.
6. Don’t heat oat milk past 65 degrees or the flavour will deteriorate.
