Coffee Cake

3/4 cup caster sugar
150g butter
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cup self raising flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons hot water
2 tablespoons instant coffee
For the icing:
225g icing sugar
100g butter
1 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee
1 tablespoon hot water

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius, and grease two equally sized sandwich tine. Add the sugar and the butter to a bowl and whisk until very fluffy and a pale cream.

Whisk the eggs in a mug with a fork and then add them gradually to the mixture with 1 tablespoon of flour each time. Make sure you don’t use all the flour.

Add the rest of the flour and the baking powder to the mixture and fold it in gently.

Dissolve the coffee in the boiling water and add to the mixture still folding. Divide into the sandwich tins and cook for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile cream the butter and the icing sugar until light and fluffy. Dissolve the coffee in boiling water, making sure you don’t add too much water or the icing will be runny and add it to the butter and icing sugar. Whisk and leave in the fridge until the cake is done.

Once the cakes are done and cooled completely sandwich together with half of the icing. Spread the remaining icing on top of the cake. Decorate with cherries, walnuts, grated chocolate, etc.
