  • Wright's Madeira Cake Mix 500g
    Instant Coffee (4 heaped teaspoons) 10g
    Water 200ml
    Vegetable Oil 60ml


DECORATION:

  • Instant Coffee (2 heaped teaspoons) 5g
    Hot Water 20ml
    Icing Sugar (sieved) 200g
    Butter 190g
    Walnuts 50g

 

METHOD (Makes 1).

  1. Dissolve the instant coffee in 2-3 tbsp hot water then make this up to 200ml with cold water.
  2. Pour into a mixing bowl together with the vegetable oil and the Cake Mix and blend to a smooth batter following the instructions on the pack.
  3.  
  4. Pour the batter into a deep round pre-lined 19cm (7½ inch) baking tin.
  5. Bake towards the lower half of a preheated oven at 160 - 170°C (325 - 340°F Gas Mark 3-4) for approximately 55-60 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool completely.
  7. Using the ingredients listed under "DECORATION", dissolve the instant coffee in the hot water and blend this together in a bowl with the butter and sieved icing sugar.
  8. Beat with a wooden spoon or electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  9. Cut the coffee cake in half across to form two layers.
  10. Place one layer on a serving plate and spread over with a third of the prepared buttercream.
  11. Place the other layer on top and spread the remaining buttercream over the top and sides of the cake.
  12. Save 6 walnut halves for decoration. Finely crush the rest and use to mask the sides of the cake.
  13. Cut the walnut halves in two and place these on top of the cake.
  14. NOTE: For that extra special touch, sprinkle the base layer of the cake with a tablespoon of coffee liqueur before sandwiching with the buttercream.
