Every year, Spring sees a festival of colour in the Northern Hemisphere. In Japan, one particular treat is the celebration of the Cherry Blossom, as the country turns itself light pink and delights the senses with floral aromas and flavours. Our Sakura Cherry Blossom Latte blend is a tribute to this celebration, and can be enjoyed any time of the year as a hot latte, cold milkshake or icy frappe. Attractive to display and suited to any barista or for home use. Available in our re-sealable 500g can.

Sakura Cake


2 Cups Luxe Brew Sakura Latte Mix

1/2 Teaspoon Luxe Brew Vanilla Raw Sugar

1 Cup Unsalted Butter

4 Eggs

1 Cup Whole Milk

2 1/2 Cups Flour

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

2 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line the bottom of each cake pan with parchment paper.

2. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugar, and vanilla on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 8 minutes.

4. Add the eggs, two at a time, beating until each addition is incorporated before adding the next. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula when necessary.

5. Add the flour mixture in four parts, alternating with the milk in three parts, beating just until each addition is incorporated before adding the next; do not overmix.

6. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan or pans and spread it so that it is smooth in the pan(s). Bake until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 40 minutes for the 9 x 13-inch pan or 45 minutes for the 8-inch pans, rotating the pan(s) halfway through.

7. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely in the pan then remove from pans.
