Coffee Cake



                                                                                     
This has a very mild flavor of coffee as I'm not a big coffee lover. But aroma of this cake will certainly  make you go crave for it. Walnuts adds that extra zing in this preparation.


Ingredients:
1 cup Wheat flour
1/2 cup Unsalted butter
1/2 cup Confectioners sugar
2 Eggs
2 tsp Instant coffee powder dissolved in 1 tbsp hot water
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
1/4 cup Walnuts



For the coffee buttercream:
1/2 cup Unsalted butter, softened
1 cup Icing sugar
2tsp coffee granules mixed with 1tbsp boiling water, let it cool

Method:
 In order to prepare the coffee buttercream, put the softened butter in the mixer bowl and add dissolved coffee and the sifted icing sugar. Then beat the butter till you get a smooth light and spreadable consistency. 


For the Cake:
Method:
Pre-heat to to 180 Degree Celsius  and grease a 8 inch round pan. Sieve flour and baking powder together. Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixture till light and fluffy. Add vanilla essence and gradually add the beaten eggs one at a time. Now gently fold the flour mixture and mix with light hand. Add the coffee liquid. Sprinkle some flour over the walnuts and mix well with the cake batter.
Shift the batter to the greased pan and level the batter with the back of a spatula. Bake at 180° C for 30-35 minutes minutes. 

                                                                    
You can check if the cake is done by inserting a toothpick in the center of the cake, if it comes out clean that means your cake is done. Serve the above butter cream over the cake and sprinkle few walnuts for decoration. Serve this coffee cake during brunch or with a cup of coffee.
