A rather yummy Coffee Cake Recipe in time for Mother’s Day

A yummy Coffee Cake Recipe
I mentioned, in earlier posts, that I was doing Slimming World.  See my post here and here for a re-cap.  I managed to lose 1 stone, yep that’s right, 1 whole stone! Go me!

I was delighted with myself and I have managed to keep it off. So in order to give myself a treat, I made this rather fabulous coffee cake.  I love making this cake and it always seems to go down well with any visitors who call, and as it’s Mother’s Day Sunday, I thought this would go down a treat with my Mother & me of course.

Here’s the recipe. It’s pretty easy enough to make & just delicious with coffee or maybe a cappuccino!

Coffee Cake Recipe

You will need the following:

  • 8 inch square cake tin with 2 inch sides
  • Food Processor or a hand held mixer will suffice

200g / 7oz of butter, softened
200g / 7oz of castor sugar
3 eggs
325g / 11 1/2oz plain flour, sifted
3tsp baking powder
150ml / 5fl oz milk
2tbsp coffee essence – Camp or Irel

Buttercream Icing
200g / 7oz butter, softened
150g / 5oz icing sugar, sifted
2tsp vanilla extract
3tbsp milk

  • Method:
    Preheat the oven to 180c deg or Gas mark 4. Line your cake tin with a cake liner or some parchment paper.
  • Cream the butter until soft with your mixer, then add the sugar and mix well.  Whisk in the eggs one at a time and fold in the remaining ingredients.  You could put all the sponge ingredients in the mixer and whiz them until combined but I prefer to do it the old way.
  • Put the mixture into your tin and smooth it over with a knife.  Bake in the oven for 40mins or until a skewer comes out clean.
  • When baked, remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.  Next remove the cake from the tin and allow to cool on a wire rack.
  • While the cake is cooling you can make the buttercream icing.  Put all the ingredients for the buttercream icing in your mixer and whiz until it’s light and fluffy.
  • Put your cake on your nice fancy plate and spread the icing over the top of the cake with your palette knife, dust with a sprinkle of cocoa powder and add some chocolate chips or coffee beans to finish it off. Slice it up & enjoy … Yum!

    Congratulations on maintaining your weight loss, you definitely deserve a little treat! This cake looks delicious, I’ve added it to my list for next week. I’ve already made cookies and I’m just about to attempt blueberry scones….I think another cake this week would be too much for just the two of us!
