Simply in time for the hotter months, Dunkin’ rolled out a summer time menu with some tasty treats, together with the Cake Batter Signature Latte that followers have been wanting for years. Dunkin’ knew their devoted prospects had been utilizing secret menu hacks to MacGyver a cake-flavored espresso for some time, and now they will not need to. The Cake Batter Signature Latte — obtainable sizzling or iced — is formally on the menu for a restricted time.
The drink begins with a cake batter-flavored syrup, which tastes like candy, vanilla frosting, and contains espresso and your alternative of milk. The iced latte is served over ice and topped with whipped cream, mocha sauce, and sprinkles. The new model is less complicated and should not embody the toppings, however we’re positive you may ask for them if you would like the complete expertise.
I snagged each a sizzling model and an iced model of the brand new latte, and each are equally tasty. The new model is cozy and candy, however not overly so. Mine did not include any of the toppings, which is how I might favor it anyway. The cake batter taste actually comes by, although, with out being overly saccharine the way in which that conventional cake batter tends to be.
It was the identical with the iced model, although that one had all of the fixings. Like the recent latte, the iced Cake Batter Signature Latte is creamy and never too candy. The flavour is refined and should even change a bit in the event you attempt completely different milks. Dunkin’ affords dairy alternate options like almond milk, oat milk, and coconut milk, and I believe these may pair actually properly with the vanilla taste on this drink. The almond milk would add some nuttiness, and the coconut milk will surely make the flavour fuller and richer.
My latte did not have the mocha sauce on prime, however I believe that is likely to be for one of the best. As a result of the cake batter taste is so refined, I fear the mocha might need overwhelmed it. For me, the sauce would not really feel crucial. The sprinkles, nonetheless, are nonnegotiable. I all the time want sprinkles in my life, they usually really feel becoming on this dessert-inspired drink.
Dunkin’s Cake Batter Signature Latte really may enchantment to fairly just a few folks, just because it is not too candy. Overly sugary drinks could be polarizing, and that is not a priority right here. Although you possibly can add extra sweetener if you would like, because it comes, it is simply candy sufficient. And don’t be concerned — you possibly can nonetheless style the espresso simply wonderful. There is a fairly good stability between the flavoring, the milk, and the espresso, and nothing will get misplaced.
As with all restricted menu merchandise, it will be gone earlier than you realize it, so in the event you’re intrigued by Dunkin’s new drink, I recommend you attempt it sooner reasonably than later so you do not miss out.
