Cappuccino Cake

After a somewhat long working week, I’m pleased to be entertaining for a few friends this weekend! As much as I love cooking though, I don’t want to spend the entire time in the kitchen, so want an easy dessert that would last the few days. What else but cake?

First visit is this evening from my friend and colleague Steph, and my girlfriend Charlotte- both huge lovers of coffee! I’ve no doubt that Cappuccino Cake will go down very well indeed, and with any luck enough will be left for when Scott and Simon visit tomorrow!

Ingredients

  • 125g of Self Raising Flour
  • 125g of unsalted butter
  • 125g of Caster Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 40 grams of Instant Coffee (Nescafe Gold Blend would be best!)

NOTE: The are ingredients per tier. I expect you to do at least two tiers. One tiered cakes are a pointless waste of space.

For icing two tiers:

  • One vanilla pod or a teaspoon of vanilla concentrate
  • 500g of Icing Sugar
  • 250g of Unsalted Butter

And finally:

  • A handful of Cocoa Powder
