Subject: Coffee & Walnut Cake

A firm favourite, this gourmet coffee and walnut cake is simply divine.  The rich flavour of the espresso is counter balanced by the light flavour of the walnuts.

Serves 12
225g caster Sugar
225g self raising flour
225g butter (unsalted) cut into cubes
100ml espresso cooled
4 medium eggs
150g walnuts chopped

To make the icing:
200g icing sugar
250g butter (unsalted) at room temperature cut into cubes
4 tablespoons espresso – cooled

  1. Make your espresso using your commercial coffee machine, traditional espresso machine or home coffee machine and allow it to cool
  2. Preheat the oven to 170C or Gas Mark 3
  3. Place the self raising flour, caster sugar, butter and eggs into a large mixing bowl and mix together until there are no lumps
  4. Add the walnuts into the cake mixture and stir in ensuring even distribution
  5. Pour in the espresso and stir in until completely mixed
  6. Grease and line two cake tins
  7. Pour the cake mixture into the cake tins and place into the oven
  8. Cook for 35 mins
  9. Now make the Espresso butter cream by placing the butter which has been left at room temperature into a bowl with the icing sugar and whisk using
           an electrical hand whisk until it achieves a white, fluffy and light consistency. Now add the espresso
  10. Using the electric hand whisk again mix the coffee into the butter cream
  11. After 35 minutes, take the cakes out of the oven and leave for around 10 minutes to cool. After the 10 minutes remove cakes
           from the cake tins and place them on a wire cooling rack. Leave them to cool to around room temperature
  12. Place one of the cake halves onto a serving plate or base and spread approximately half of the espresso butter cream on top
  13. Place the other half of the cake on top and spread the remaining espresso butter cream in an even layer on top
  14. Decorate the top of your cake with walnuts. You could also use shaved chocolate, chocolate coated coffee beans, its entirely up to you
  15.   Slice, serve and enjoy!
