A Family Favourite

'Anonymous' left a comment on my flea finds post below, asking for my recipe for coffee and walnut cake. I'm guessing it was aimed at my 'wonky cake' that I made for my daughter's wedding back in 2012! 

The recipe I used was from this wonderful little book, written by the WI, complied by Jessica Simmons.
Here's the recipe, which I decorated differently with coffee flavoured butter cream icing and chopped walnuts (click on the photos to enlarge the text if necessary.)

As an alternative, make a basic Victoria sponge and add 1 teaspoon of coffee essence (or coffee water made from instant coffee), plus 60g (2oz) chopped walnuts to the mixture before cooking.)
Hope that helps, my anonymous friend! :)

  1. Looks delicious, Niki! Thanks for sharing it!

  2. Thanks for the coffee cake recipe. I'll halve the ingredients and make a small cake as a treat for my husband.

    Thank you so much! I am useless with technology that is why I appear as anonymus. My name is Anne, I did not mean to be rude.
    I really thank you for the recipe. I will try it this weekend.

  4. Hi Anne! Good to put a name to the comment! I didn't think you rude at all - I appreciate you reading my blog :) I've had to set up my comments mainly for bloggers to use, otherwise I get inundated with spam...

    Thanks again and have a fun baking day!
