I Love Coffee!!

Posted on Posted in blog, cake, recipe, Uncategorized

It’s coffee week!

I’m excited!

I’ve been hunting down coffee flavoured things and eating them all week. Because I’m allowed haha

And I made my favourite as well, can you guess what it is?… Yep, Coffee Cake

Start off by prepping your cake tins

… Dissolve coffee granules in some boiling water

… Add flour and baking powder

 … Sugar

… Butter and eggs

… And mix together and add the coffee

Pour the mixture into your prepared pans, I used 4 6″ pans. But somehow only took pictures of 2, don’t ask… I actually don’t know why i did that

Moving on, bake your cakes until a toothpick comes out clean. Voila!

I frosted with coffee buttercream, you can never have too much coffee in a coffee cake. I think I’ve said ‘coffee’ enough times now. No?

Enjoy my coffee cake with me. I hope you can eat vicariously through my pictures

INGREDIENTS

  • 8oz butter
  • 8oz caster sugar
  • 8oz self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 level tsp instant coffee, dissolved in 1 tbsp boiling water

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 180C. Butter and line the base of four 6in sandwich cake tins.
Measure all the cake ingredients, except the coffee, into a large mixing bowl and beat together until smooth. Stir in the dissolved coffee until thoroughly blended. Divide the mixture evenly between the prepared tins and level the tops.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 25–30 minutes until golden brown, shrinking away from the sides of the tin and the sponge springs back when lightly pressed.

Sharing is sexy!
  • I was being greedy, haha! I thought I'd have more for myself but my sisters liked it too so they had their share. Unfortunately…
    Hopefully, I'll be able to join again this week ☺

  • Thank you and you should definitely try a 4 layer cake, makes you feel extra special with each slice 😉

  • This looks brilliant, I love all the layers would never have thought to make a cake with four layers, will be giving that ago next time. I really enjoyed coffee cake when I was on maternity leave last time round but havent had the craving yet… thank you for joining us at #BloggerClubUK hope to see you again this week x

  • I love this coffee cake recipe and that you incorporated the coffee into the sponge! I have never made a four layer cake either, I want to make one now!

  • Haha I understand. I only made 4 layers because I knew I wouldn't be making it again for a while, just me being greedy

  • I've been celebrating coffee week with a slice of coffee cake today too! I only had two layer though – I'm jealous of the fact you've got 4!

  • Oh no, really? At least you like coffee flavoured things so you're not really missing out. Let know how your cake turns out 🙂

  • Coffee is great right?! I started drinking green tea regularly so I try to get my coffee fix with coffee cake. I know it's cheating but it's coffee + cake together, I'm sure I'm allowed… Ooh, you should definitely try this recipe and let me know how it turns out

  • That looks amazing! I hate coffee (don't ask!!) but I love anything with coffee in so I must try this at the weekend! 🙂
