Coffee and Walnut Cake

Posted By Kerri


I was quite pleased with how this worked out, despite it’s somewhat lopsided appearance. I’m not a very experienced baker so I’m not sure why this happened, perhaps I had the oven too hot?

I followed a Delia Smith recipe, best to stick to basics when you’re not that confident in your ability was my thinking. It actually seemed quite complicated when it came to it though, the recipe wasn’t laid out particularly well and there was lots of unnecessary waffle that was confusing. It went pretty smoothly though and, most importantly, it tasted good.

    For someone who used to be scared of baking this looks wonderful! You can’t beat a classic coffee cake.

    Thanks Jules 🙂 If you saw it in real life you’d realise just how lopsided it is though. It’s also really flat!

    I know what you mean about Delia and her waffle. We’ve had the kids at school baking some of her cakes but we tend to take out and abbreviate the recipe. The cake doesn’t look lopsided in the photo at all and the icing makes it look gorgeous.

    Thanks Donna.

    This is quite strongly flavoured Mrs Ergul but the icing cuts the coffee flavour a little.

    I hope you like it Ana!

    That’s a good idea Ros, I’ll remember to cut and paste before attempting in future.

    Practice makes perfect Ingrid, I should know!
