I’m lucky to be surrounded by some wonderful influences in my life. I was surfing Facebook the other day when I saw an amazing coffee cake made by my friends lovely Mum Sue.
I have been using beanies flavoured coffees recently some gorgeous flavours, Irish cream, cinder toffee, and so many more. They are also low calorie for those watching your figure. I asked for the recipe for her cake and she was happy to oblige.
Sue’s Super Coffee Cake
8 oz caster sugar, self raising flour, margarine and 4 eggs.
Mix altogether then add tablespoon of instant coffee. ( I used caramel beanies)
Split between two cake tins that have been greased and lined.
Bake for approximately 30 mins at 160 degrees ( fan oven- alter settings accordingly)
Remove from oven and once sponges have cooled down sandwich together with butter icing.
8oz of sieved icing sugar
8oz of softened butter
2 tsps of coffee
1 tblspn of cooled boiled water
I also used butter icing on top of the cake to decorate, and applied some cute heart shaped chocolates.
All the family loved this recipe – it went down a storm.
