I'm making my first ever coffee cake. While having a cup of tea and piece of coffee cake in Seale on Saturday - I suddenly thought "why have I never made coffee cake?" So here I am with my first ever coffee cake baking away. My parents are coming to visit this weekend, so another reason to get something yummy in the oven!
Here is the recipe:
175g self raising flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
175g soft brown sugar
2 tsp instant coffee mixed with 2 tsp boiling water
Bung all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk until smooth. Divide between two tins and bake at 180/gas 4 for 25 minutes.
Sandwich together with coffee buttercream and a good dollop spread on the top of the cake .... decorate with walnuts, choc buttons etc .... picture to follow!!!
