Coffee Cake

Coffee and Cake! What a delicious combination and a good excuse to enjoy a natter with a neighbor or friend (and it gives me a chance to try out my new baking tins).

The Ingredients
175g (3/4cup) butter
175g (3/4cup) brown sugar
4 eggs
1tsp cardamon
175g (3/4cup) flour
1 1/2tsp baking powder
40ml (1/5cup) espresso
70g (1/3cup) ground walnuts

Butter Cream
240g (1cup) icing sugar
120g butter (1/2cup) butter
60ml (1/4cup) espresso

50g (1/5cup) walnuts for decoration

Preheat oven at 180°C (356F). Mix the butter, sugar, eggs and cardamon together. Add the flour, baking powder, espresso and walnuts. Fill the mixture into two round baking tins (ø17cm/6.5inch). Bake for about 35 minutes. In the meantime make the butter cream.

After the cakes have cooled down, fill and decorate with the butter cream and walnuts.

  1. Ohhh, that looks so lovely. Wish I could have a slice right now!! Am adding this recipe to my must make list. I’m visiting Mom in North Carolina right now, but will make this scrumptious looking cake when I return home. I’m sure it is as yummy as your lemon cake. Thanks for adding the U.S. measurements. 🙂
