About this recipe: This is an old recipe I have for chocolate-coffee icing. Simply perfect for decorating a coffee and walnut cake or pipe on top of chocolate cupcakes. The recipe makes enough to cover a 20cm layered cake.


Serves: 12 

  • 30g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 80ml strong, hot, brewed coffee
  • 350g icing sugar
  • 75g melted butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 30g chopped walnuts (optional)

Prep:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Combine coffee and cocoa in a bowl; beat until blended. Add sugar, melted butter, salt and vanilla; beat until blended. Scrape down the bowl and continue to beat icing until it has a spreading consistency.
  2. Ice the cake or cupcakes as desired. Top with chopped walnuts if desired.
