    Ingredients
    Makes: 1 large cake

    • 170g self raising flour
    • 170g caster sugar
    • 170g butter or margerine
    • 150g lightly chopped walnuts
    • 2 tablespoons good instant coffee
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 eggs

    Method
    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / 180 C fan / Gas 6. Line a large cake or loaf tin.
    2. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. The mixture may look curdled but it is ok. Sift in the flour, baking powder and coffee, and mix.
    3. Stir in the walnuts until well distributed and pour into the lined tin.
    4. Bake for 30-40 minutes and allow to cool on a wire rack.

    Tip

    Beating in the eggs until paled and slightly fluffy gives for a lighter, fluffier sponge.

    Baking heat HAS to be wrong on this, as after 30-40 mins and gas 6 and prepared EXACTLY as recipe, i was left with a burn't cake with a soggy middle. What a complete waste of time and money If anyone else want to try this, i suggest cook on gas 4 for 60 mins - 01 Nov 2012

    My first attempt at this resulted in a sagging middle and slightly burnt edges, but taste and texture were OK. For the next one, at wife's suggestion I reduced the baking powder to 1 teaspoon and covered the cake after 30 mins and baked on for another 20 mins ('til the skewer came out clean) I might try 170 fan next time to avoid having to cover it. It looked and tasted excellent. - 25 Mar 2016

    The cakes I've made use 180 max for 45 mins. I boobed by using fresh coffee. You need to add 50-70g extra flour if you do that - 16 Mar 2016
