- STEP 1
Using a cake mixer, mix all the ingredients together except the coffee. The mix should be not too firm and not too runny. Once mixed slowly mix in half of the dissolved coffee.
- STEP 2
Divide the cake mixture between 2 lined small cake tins (about 7" ish).
Heat the oven to 190 degrees and bake for about 20 minutes. A skewer should come out clean when dipped in the cake.
- STEP 3
Once cooked remove from the oven and stand on a wire rack for a few minutes until cool then turn out on the rack till completely cool.
- STEP 4
Once the cakes are cool make the butter Icing by combining the softened butter with the icing sugar. When mixed gradually add half of the remaining coffee mixture. Sandwich the 2 halves together with the butter icing and dust the top with icing sugar.
- STEP 5
If you want a larger cake then just double the quantities, and if you want a really buttery cake then make extra butter icing and top the cake too!
