Gluten Free Coffee and Walnut Cake
Todays recipe is one I cook for my goo friend Michelle, who is gluten and dairy free. It is a simple recipe but very enjoyable to eat
10oz of Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
10oz of Butter/Plant based butter
5oz of light soft brown sugar
5oz of caster sugar
4 tsp of instant coffee dissolved in 4 Tbsp of water
1.5 tsp of gluten free baking powder
2 x 20cm sandwich tins
BUTTER ICING INGREDIENTS
5oz of Plant based butter/ Butter
12oz of icing sugar
3tsp of instant coffee mixed with 2 Tbsp of warm water
Preheat the oven at 170c. Line the two cake tins with baking parchment and then dust with flour.
I then use an all in one method with the ingredients and then put all ingredients in the mixer for 2 minutes on full.
Once out of the mixer evenly distribute in the two tins and place in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
Once the cake is cooked place on a cooling rack. Whilst waiting for the cake to cool make the butter cream.
Once the cake is cool spread of the butter cream in between the two halves and then decorate the top, with the rest of the butter cream and walnut halves.
This is great with a cup of tea ( Or a baileys :))
