Cake

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125g unsalted butter
115g caster sugar
110g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons instant coffee powder
pinch salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
55g ground almonds
flaked almonds, to decorate

Frosting

Quantity Ingredient
185g butter
250g icing sugar, sifted
2 teaspoons instant coffee powder, dissolved in 1 teaspoon hot water

Method

  1. To make cake, cream butter with sugar. Sift together flour, baking powder, coffee and salt, and stir into creamed mixture alternately with eggs. Stir in ground almonds.
  2. Divide mixture evenly between 2 greased and bottom-lined 18 cm sandwich tins. Bake in a preheated moderately hot oven 190°C for about 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Turn cakes out and cool on a wire rack.
  3. To make frosting, cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in coffee. Use frosting to sandwich cakes together and to cover top and sides. Press flaked almonds lightly into top and sides to decorate.
