Coffee and Walnut Cake

This recipe was requested by my wonderful yoga teacher, Louise. I have made this cake once before for my friend Hils' birthday. I got this recipe from BBC Food

Ingredients for the cake:
225g butter, softened 
225g caster sugar
4 eggs
50ml coffee
225g self raising flour
75g walnuts 

Ingredients for the buttercream:
125g butter, softened 
200g icing sugar
50ml coffee 
12 walnuts, to decorate 

1. Preheat the oven to 180. In a bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well to incorporate each egg before adding the next one. 
2. Add the coffee and stir well. Add the flour and walnuts. Spoon the cake mixture into two lined and greased 20cm cake tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden brown. Leave to cool.
3. To make the buttercream, beat together the butter and sugar until smooth and pale. Add the coffee and stir well. Spread the buttercream over the top of each cake, then place one cake on top of the other. Decorate the top of the cake with the walnuts. 

After making this cake yesterday, I did a couple of social distanced cake deliveries. It's so nice to be able to share my baking, both here on my blog and in person with my wonderful friends.
