How to Make Coffee and Walnut Cake
I remember my mother making an amazing coffee and walnut cake when I was a kid. After the first serving though, she would always hide it away and up high somewhere out of my reach! No fair – but now I get to enjoy all the coffee cake recipes I want! I hope you enjoy this as much as me.
4 eggs (whites separated from yolks)
175g coarsely chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon of drinking chocolate
1 tablespoon of ground ground coffee
1 tablespoon of fine breadcrumbs
Preparation and Cooking Times
First mix together the egg yolks with the sugar. Next add the breadcrumbs, coffee and chocolate powder and mix thoroughly. Then add the walnuts and mix well once more.
Then gently fold in the egg whites (which have already been vigorously beaten) and pour into a cake tin which has been greased with butter and dusted with flour.
Bake in a preheated 180c oven for fourty five minutes. And when the cake is cool, turn out and spread with a butter cream. Yummy!
To make the butter cream, you will need:
100g unsalted butter
100g icing sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons of very strong (and fine) coffee grounds
Just cream together the butter and sugar. Then add the egg yolk and the coffee and beat well to a smooth cream.
