Chocolate and coffee are always a great mix, especially when it comes to cake. This cake combines walnuts and coffee with a thick chocolate frosting top, dusted with cocoa. Perfect to slice and share with friends.
What you need:
175g light brown sugar, 175g, self raising flour, 175g soft unsalted butter, 3 eggs, 50g of chopped walnuts, two heaped tsp of coffee diluted or one espresso shot, 1 tsp baking powder. On Top: chocolate frosting (melted chocolate, butter and icing sugar creamed together), half walnuts.
Preheat the oven to 180c
Simply cream together the sugar and butter until combined well, add in the flour and baking powder, sieved, the eggs, chopped walnuts and coffee. Mix together until you form a light brown cake batter. Spoon into a cake tin. For this one I chose a loaf tin for easy slicing. Place in the oven for 30mins or until the cake is springy. Let it cool and top with chocolate frosting and half walnuts.
Nice to share.
