FEATURED RECIPES ON THIS WEEKS SHOW
For the cake:
For the filling:
For the icing:
Preheat the oven to 180°c and line 8 inch round tins with greaseproof paper.
Beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy.
Whisk the egg and add to the mixture bit by bit, mixing well between each addition.
Sieve the flour with the baking powder onto the mixture and fold in gently.
Finally add the coffee essence and mix well.
Bake for 30 minutes until the cake is firm but springy and the edges will have shrunk from the edges of the tin.
While the cake is cooling you can make the filling.
For this whisk the butter and icing sugar together and add the coffee essence. Whisk until light and fluffy.
To make the coffe icing for the top sieve the icing sugar into a bowl, add the coffee essence and some boiling water and continue to add little amounts until the consistency of it resembles thick cream.
When the cake is cool, sandwich together with the filling, and cover with the icing. Decorate with almonds, hazelnuts or chocolate covered coffee beans!
