This very simple, gorgeous recipe was given to me by a friend in the UK, you can bake it in a 20 cm tin like I did or alternatively you can divide it into smaller tins (they have to have upright sides) and they ill take less time in the oven 12-15 min, make sure they spring back when touched and the skewer comes out clean.

175g Salted butter
175g Golden caster sugar
3 Eggs beaten
175g Self raising Flour
1Tsp baking powder
100g chopped walnuts
2 Tbls cooled strong coffee
Butter Icing/Frosting and walnuts to decorate

1. Preheat oven to 180
2. Grease and line 2 (20 cm) cake tins or smaller tins if you prefer
3. Beat butter and sugar untilpale & fluffy, gradually whisk in the eggs one by one until blended, add the coffee making sure it all come together
4. Sift in flour and baking powder and fold the mixture with the walnuts
5. Bake for 20-25 min, or until cooked




Leave to cool, sandwich with coffee flavoured butter icing 200g butter, 400g icing sugar and 2 tbls strong coffee. Decorate with walnuts....divine. Thanks Susan hart for the lovely recipe.
