Coffee and Walnut Cake Recipe


This is a wonderfully moist cake with the perfect texture, crumbly and dense but not too heavy.  It's definitely flavoursome - too flavoursome for me in fact, I'm not a fan of coffee cake.  Hubster is a fan, a huge fan, this cake was made for his birthday.  Thankfully he loves it, he's eaten most of it all to himself as it seems our Smalls agree with me.  


Ingredients:
8 Eggs
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
450g Self Raising Flour
450g Golden Caster Sugar
850g Butter
800g Icing Sugar
200g Walnuts
5 Dessert Spoons Coffee Powder

Tools and Materials:

Method:


Get the cake tin laid out and really well greased with non stick cooking spray.


Mix the eggs, flour, butter, sugar, baking powder and 4 spoon fulls of the coffee.


Get it well mixed.


Then pour half of the mixture into the prepared cake tin.


Cook at 180 degrees centigrade for 30 minutes.

Turn the cake out to cool.


Re-arrange the cake tin and re-coat it with non stick cooking spray.

Pour the other half of the mixture into the cake tin.


Cook at 180 degrees centigrade for 30 minutes.

Turn the cake out to cool.


Here's my cooled cakes ready for decorating.


Next mix 800g icing sugar and 400g of butter with a dessert spoon full of coffee.


Beat well.


And spread evenly over the cake.


Crush the walnuts and sprinkle them over the top of the cake.


Like so.
