Does preparing to do a health retreat mean eating up all the coffee and walnut cake before I start on Saturday so that aI am not tempted during the juice fast?
I think I know the answer to that :-(
Here is the recipe.
3 large eggs beaten
225g SR flour
30ml coffee essence (I didn't have any so made a pot of espresso)
75g walnuts chopped Save some halves for decoration
20cm cake tin
oven 180C 350F Gas mark4 for about 45mins
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, beating well. Fold in flour, coffee essence and walnuts.
When baked (springs back when lightly pressed) leave in tin to cool for five minutes.
When cold, cover with buttercream. Cut into slices and freeze open, then wrap individual slices in foil to freeze.
I will definitely make this one again for the wonderful coffee mornings I am going to have when I am allowed to see my friends again!
