Difficulty:
Easy
Prep Time:

Cook Time:
30 minutes
Servings:
Serves 8

Ingredients

  • 170g butter or margarine, plus extra for the tins
  • 170g caster sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 170g self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp cooled instant coffee, dissolved in 1 tbsp hot water (add more if you like it stronger)

For the icing

  • 225g icing sugar
  • 100g butter or margarine
  • 1½ tbsp instant coffee, dissolved in 1 tbsp hot water
  • strawberry jam (optional)
  • walnuts or cherries, to decorate (optional)

Instructions

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan and butter two 18cm sandwich tins. Place the sugar and butter in a bowl and whisk until light and fluffy.
  • Step 2: Crack the eggs into a mug and stir with a fork. Gradually mix the eggs, 1 tbsp of flour at a time, into the butter mixture. Once all the eggs are combined, fold in the rest of the flour.
  • Step 3: Gently combine the dissolved coffee into the cake mix. Divide the batter between the two tins and bake for 25-30 minutes until the cake is risen and firm. To check the cakes are cooked through, insert a skewer and it should come out clean. Leave the cakes in the tins for 5 minutes before turning them out onto a wire rack to cool. The cake can be frozen at this stage.
  • Step 4: While the cake is cooling, prepare the coffee icing. Beat the icing sugar and butter together until light and fluffy, then add the dissolved coffee. Whisk until fully combined and set aside until ready to ice the cake.
  • Step 5: Spread half the icing on the bottom of one sponge and spread the strawberry jam on the bottom of the other, if using. Sandwich together, then spread the remaining icing on top. If wanted, you can decorate it with walnuts or cherries.
