What Makes This Iced Latte Unique?

Which is the best Dunkin Donuts iced coffee flavor? Is it the French Vanilla Swirl? The Mocha Swirl? How about the new Cake Batter Swirl Iced latte? If you don’t go to Dunkin often, you might have missed this uniquely tantalizing flavor.

It’s the perfect blend of the original Dunkin iced latte and a shot of cake batter syrup, topped with whipped cream, rainbow sprinkles, and chocolate sauce. What a delicious way to cool off on a hot summer day.

How Do You Make This Recipe at Home? 

You can’t make this recipe using hot coffee. For the smoothest flavor, plan and make cold-brewed coffee. The recipe is easy, and you don’t need any fancy brewing equipment. But it takes time. Twelve hours, to be exact. 

If that is too long, brew a few extra cups of coffee in the morning and stick it in the fridge for later. 

The other make-ahead ingredient for this recipe is the cake batter syrup. You can use the recipe below to make your own, but remember to give yourself enough time for the syrup to cool before using.

You can also buy pre-made cake batter syrup, sometimes labeled as ‘Cupcake‘ or ‘Birthday Cake.’
