For The Frosting:

200g essential Waitrose Salted Dairy Butter, at room temperature

400g icing sugar

2 tbsp strong black coffee, cooled

icing sugar

How To Make A Classic Coffee And Walnut Cake:

1.) Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Grease and line 2 x 20cm loose-bottomed cake tins.

2.) Using an electric hand whisk, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually whisk in the eggs, then coffee, until well blended.

3.) Sift over the flour and baking powder and gently fold into the mixture with the chopped walnuts. Divide between the 2 cake tins, level off the surface and bake for 20–25 minutes until just set. Turn the cakes out onto a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

4.) Meanwhile, to make the frosting, beat the butter until soft and pale then gradually beat in the sugar followed by the coffee.

5.) Spread the top of one cake with a third of the frosting then place the second cake on top. Smooth the remaining frosting around the sides and top of the cake. Decorate with the reserved walnut halves.

Cook’s Tip:

If you want to treat your mum but are short of time, pick up one of our Seriously Cakes — such as the delicious Roasted Rhubarb & Ginger Cake or buttery Victoria Sponge Sandwich.

Eat whilst still fresh. Will keep a few days in a cake tin with a sealed lid.

  4. I like to make a Black Walnut cake at Christmas for DH but mine doesn’t have coffee in the recipe and it has a cream cheese frosting. Your recipe sounds good, so I’m saving it to give a try at a future date. Thanks for sharing. I’m stopping by via Inspire Me Mondays. Come boogie with me on the dance floor if you’d like! 😉

  5. That is an absolutely beautiful cake. I can almost taste it in my mind! Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner party! I look forward to seeing what you’ll bring to the next party.
