Coffee Cake Recipe


  • 175 gr Softened Baking Butter
  • 175 gr Castor Sugar
  • 3 Eggs, beaten
  • 280 gr (sifted) Self Raising Flour
  • 100 ml Strong Quality Coffee


  • 125 ml Milk
  • 125 gr Butter
  • 3 tbsp Castor Sugar
  • 575 gr Icing Sugar
  • Shaved Chocolate (for decoration) optional


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Line two 20 cm baking pans (preferable aluminium pans) with baking paper.
  • Mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Gradually beat in the eggs.
  • Fold in the flour and coffee.
  • Do not over mix.
  • Split the batter between the two pans.
  • Bake for 30 minutes (can be less, depending on your oven).

Tip: When you start to smell the cake it is a good indication that the baking time is almost over. Switch on your oven light on and first look through the window to see if it is changing color. You can then test to see if it is ready by inserting a kebab stick. If it comes out clean it is baked.

To  make the icing:

  • Put milk and butter in pan and heat gently until melted.
  • Remove from heat and put aside.
  • Add sugar in saucepan and heat gently until it is totally dissolved and turned to caramel.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the warm milk.
  • Return to heat and stir until all is dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and add icing sugar. 
  • Beat until icing is smooth and spreadable. 
  • Let it cool before filling the cake.
  • Cover the cake with a thin layer of caramel and add chocolate flakes on the top.

You can also replace the caramel icing with whipped cream if caramel is too sweet for you. Remember to enjoy the cake with your favorite coffee! It is never too much coffee!
