Coffee Cake

Mr G hates coffee but likes coffee cake, so I decided to make one for him as a surprise! I ploughed through my baking books looking for inspiration and a recipe by Rachel Allen caught my eye. The recipe looked simple enough, and although it was tasty (according to Mr G), I was disappointed with the consistency. It was not as moist as I had hoped. The coffee infused buttercream was good though, and I completed the look by topping it with gold - flecked chocolate covered coffee beans (Thanks Philippa!)

  1. OMG! That looks so delicious. I love coffee frosting, I could just eat it right out of the mixing bowl.
