Hey again #cakechums – as promised my new Coffee and Walnut Cake recipe is now LIVE!
First of all, let me reassure you that I will not actually be posting a new blog post every single day from now on – it just so happens that I have had a lot to say over the last couple of days…
However, after teasing that my new recipe for my Coffee and Walnut Cake was on the way, it received a lot of interest and excitement both here and over on social media. Naturally, after seeing that, I could hardly keep you waiting for it, so I wanted to get it up as soon as possible.
This one actually came about after I was asked to whip up a Coffee and Walnut Cake for a family celebration. As I was starting to think about it (and having checked out some of my favourite recipe sites), it occurred to me that I hadn’t actually made one of these in years. Although I would absolutely consider myself a coffee fiend, I wouldn’t usually reach for a coffee-flavoured cake if other options were available. And that got me thinking… why?
I think, quite honestly, it’s because I usually find that recipes for coffee-based cakes such as a Coffee and Walnut Cake often lack the flavour punch that I would want from them, so I decided it was time to come up with one of my own.
My recipe for Coffee and Walnut Cake makes use of both real coffee AND a good quality coffee extract to really amp up the flavour, as well as a real espresso coffee syrup and a coffee buttercream. When these are paired with a whole lot of chunky walnut pieces, they create a cake that is jam-packed with flavour, deliciously moist and wonderfully textured too (we do love a bit of texture).
