Cappuccino Cake Recipe

Ingredients

Cappuccino Cake

Cappuccino Cake with a caramel sauce

Cake

1 cup Plain Chocolate
1 tbsp. Instant Coffee Granules
1 cup Butter, softened
1 cup Dark, soft brown sugar
5 Eggs
1/2 cup Ground almonds
1 cup Corn flour

Garnish

2 tbsp. Strong coffee, cooled
2 tbsp. Dark Rum
1 1/4 cups Whipping Cream
Cocoa powder or chocolate shavings to decorate


Directions

Cake

Grease a 9 inch round, spring-form release cake pan and line the base with parchment paper.

Melt the chocolate with the instant coffee and leave to cool slightly.

Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each addition. Fold in the almonds, corn flour and melted chocolate. Pour into the prepared tin and level the surface.

Bake in the oven at 350°F for about 75 minutes or until risen and just firm to the touch.

Cover the cake with parchment paper to prevent it becoming too brown, if necessary. Leave cake to cool in the pan.


Garnish

When cold, prick the cake all over with a fork. Mix the coffee and rum together and pour evenly over the cake. Leave for at least 30 minutes.


Remove cake from tin and transfer to a serving plate. Frost the cake (optional) with the Coffee Frosting list below.

Whip the cream until it just holds its shape. Put a spoonful the whip cream on each slice when serving and dust with a little cocoa powder.


Coffee Buttercream Frosting

3 tbsp. Strong brewed coffee
1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

Spread on cooled cappuccino cake.
