    One of my best home-grown recipes. Very crumbly and still moist as well as being just full of walnuts it'll leave you wanting more.

    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.


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