Prep Time:

Cook Time:

Servings:
Cuts into 12-16

Ingredients

  • 225g butter, softened, plus extra for the tin
  • 4 tbsp instant coffee granules
  • 100g pecans, plus 8 for the topping
  • 225g light muscovado sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 225g self-raising flour (if you have rye flour, you can swap in 25g of it)
  • 1 tsp baking powder

For the icing

  • 100g butter, softened
  • 200g icing sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Step 1: Grease a 30 x 20cm, 2.5cm deep cake tin and line with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. Mix the coffee in 3 tbsp of hot water and put aside. Place all the pecans, including the 8 for the topping, onto a baking tray and toast in the oven for 8-10 minutes, then let cool for a bit. Split 8 of the pecans into 16 and set aside. Chop the remaining pecans finely, leaving some texture.
  • Step 2: Whisk the butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Crack in the eggs one at a time, whisking until completely combined. Beat in half of the dissolved coffee. Gently fold the dry 'ingredients' (flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt) and half of the chopped nuts into the wet 'ingredients'. Evenly spread the batter into the tin and top with the remaining chopped nuts. Smooth the top with a spatula and bake for 30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely.
  • Step 3: Mix the butter until creamy, and add in the icing sugar, vanilla and additional coffee mixture. Place the cooled cake onto a platter and cover with the prepared frosting. Sprinkle with the chopped pecans and cut into squares to serve.
