How have you been? Never mind, I can’t wait for the answer. I am so happy to share this magical solution with all of you. And you know who you are.

Yes, I am talking to all of you, coffee, cappuccino and latte addicts.

For a months and months I was on a secret mission. Testing, testing and testing.

Trying, trying and trying…and I almost was certain that this post will never happen until I discover the one and only…

KEURIG MAGIC FROTHER!

And then the stars started to sing, 5 of them …. homemade cappuccino and latte. And as I was looking at the sky I went to Superstore and bought the little magical machine that will change my coffee life in the way I can’t explain.

DESCRIPTION OF HOMEMADE CAPPUCCINO

What is a good cappuccino?

Well, let me start with this. It has three layers.

One part of coffee + one part of the steamed milk + one part of magical white foam!

Yes, three layers of magic that will go into your body, touch your soul in the way that human can’t and make you so happy. And really what is the happiness if not cup of cappuccino, tea or coffee? Yes, I know! Or should I say I know that I know nothing. Not really, it was opinion of Socrates and he knew nothing about the cappuccino.

Speaking of history, when the cappuccino drink was introduced in Italy, it was named after Cupuchin friars. Why? Because of the color. Yes the color of the Capuchin robe is similar to the color of the espresso mixed with frothed milk.

So, to make cappuccino at home you need to follow 3 steps:

  • Prepare the espresso or coffee
  • Create the frothy milk
  • Find your magical cup and pour into it.

HOW EASY WAS THAT? SUPER EASY!

So, let’s start with the list called…

SHOPPING LIST

  • milk (3.25%)
  • sugar (if you are not on diet)

EQUIPMENT REQUIRED

How to make homemade CAPPUCCINO USING KEURIG FROTHER

Ingredients

Pour the coffee into your favorite cappuccino cup.

I used 1/4 cup of coffee.

FROTH THE MILK using KEURIG

Add 1/2 cup milk or enough milk to fill to the minimum line.

Place lid and place frother on frother base.

Press the top button. (HOT FROTHING)

You will hear the sound of magic.

Working and making the best milk froth.

After about 2 minutes the button flashes then turns off which means the magic happen.

Remove the lid and enjoy for the moment.

The white foam is in front of you but don’t dream too much.

Your favorite cup with the coffee at the bottom is waiting.

Pour the white magic on top of your favorite coffee.

First you will pour the hot steamed milk and then the most amazing magical foam will follow.

You will need the small spoon to transfer all of that white magic on top of steamed milk.

Again, enjoy for a second or longer.

Garnish your favorite cappuccino with ground cinnamon, chocolate or nutmeg. (you can use sprinkles if you like…or anything your little heart is desired or asking for. Yes, please be generous to yourself.)

Of course if you use the smaller cup…you can share.

Quick Note for Keurig Frothing Success

MILK – use 3.25% . Yes, this was my magical secret success.

If you use 2% milk – did not work for me. Yes, it did not. To be honest, yes I got the foam but not like when I use 3.25% milk.

Almond Milk – I did not try. Let me know if it works for you.

So, let me share the secret for success using Keurig frother!

milk for cappuccino or latte

USE 3.25 % MILK

FINAL NOTE FOR Homemade Cappuccino vs Latte in 6 minutes

homemade keurig cappuccino
homemade cappuccino vs latte easy recipe

Cappuccino vs Latte. Well, let’s be honest it is not cappuccino vs latte. Not really?

Why? Because the Keurig made it easy. It is cappuccino and latte. You just need to buy the most magical machine called Milk Frother. And let it happen.

Now, the question is what is really the difference between two coffee drinks?

Cappuccino has an even distribution of coffee, steamed and foamed milk.

If you think the perfect cappuccino the number must be 1 to 1 ratio of liquid to foam. (yes, so weight your drink if you are looking for the perfect ratio)

A latte has way more steamed milk than cappuccino. Also, the top foam is way lighter.

And visually a cappuccino is distinctly layered (you can see dark coffee bottom, then steamed milk and top white foam perfection. For the latte the espresso and steamed milk are blended together.

Also, because the latte is made with more milk … it has more calories.

For step by step pictures and instructions CLICK THIS LINK

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Line the baking sheet (16 by 12 inch) with aluminum foil.

Spray with baking spray and set aside.

Bowl 1: Add dry ingredients

Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder.

To that mixture add the ground hazelnuts and stir all ingredients together.

What happen? You can’t see the flour. Like I said the boss is Hazelnuts.

Now, let’s mix eggs and sugar.

So, add to the mixing bowl eggs and sugar.

Mix on high speed for about 9 minutes or until tripled in volume.

Our next step is to combine dry and wet ingredients.

Using the spatula fold dry ingredients into the eggs, in 3 additions. (slowly)

SUPER IMPORTANT: Please, pay attention to this step.

Be very gently when mixing dry ingredients into the eggs mixture.

I will repeat again. Be sure the flour hazelnuts mixture is mixed or incorporated into the eggs mixture.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake at 350 F for about 15 to 17 minutes.

Use a toothpick to check if the cake is done.

Remove from the oven.

Cool it for about 2 to 3 hours.

While cake is resting, make the Nutella filling.

How to Make THE BEST Nutella Filling

Add cheese to the mixing bowl and mix until smooth.

Then transfer to the plate.

Using the same bowl mix the heavy cream for 2 minutes.

Then add cheese and mix until two ingredients are incorporated.

Then add crushed Wafers and hazelnuts.

Stir all ingredients using your favorite spatula.

And you just made the best Nutella filling.

MAKING CHOCOLATE GLAZE FOR Best Ferrero Rocher Cake

Heat the cream until almost boiling.

Add chopped chocolate and corn syrup to the bowl.

Pour the heated cream over the chocolate and corn syrup mixture.

Let sit for 5 minutes.

ASSEMBLY for Best Ferrero Rocher Cake

You can refrigerate the cake for a few hours. It will be easier to handle.

You need to cut 3 layers of the cake. The size is 9 by 5. (The leftovers will be used for recipe 2)

Place the first layer of the cake to a serving plate.

Add Nutella filling, second layer cake.

Then add Nutella filling and the third layer of the ferrero rocher cake.

Return to fridge until filling is set.

Note: At this point, I find it is important to chill the cake before continuing to help the Nutella filling firm up.

Pour the chocolate glaze over the best ferrero cake.

Decorate with shaved chocolate, Ferrero chocolate candies, ground hazelnuts, icing sugar.

I made this torte many, many times.One of them went into this post Shmoo Torte – a gooey torte with a mysterious past (Winnipeg). So, now you are wondering why I am doing it again?

Well, my original recipe was for 9 inch cake pan and I was not on diet.

Now, I am but I am not about to give up on tortes, cakes or desserts. So, I was thinking to make a smaller version of my favorite cake, Shmoo Torte.

Smaller version got another letter so it is now, Schmoo torte. Did I confuse you? Of course I did. But it is not my fault.

The name is what is so confusing. It can be Schmoo or Shmoo. Because of that the Universe is taking so much time to make it viral. But with the help of God, Dr. Google and you my sweet baking nation it is the time to share this recipe. With the whole sweet world. From Europe to China to USA this recipe is the recipe that MUST be made.

Because we need something to unify us and this is it. The torte from Canada called Schmoo Torte or Shmoo. Who cares?

The recipe is the same. Delicious Canadian layer cake with whipped cream filling and homemade caramel sauce.
