Mary’s Legendary Coffee Cake

Ingredients:

For the cake:

8oz self-rising flour

8oz superfine sugar

8oz Kerrygold Irish Butter, softened

4 farm fresh eggs

1 tbsp coffee essence

Walnuts to decorate

 

For the icing:

8oz powdered sugar

4oz Kerrygold Irish Butter

Dash of coffee essence

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease a 9x11in baking dish, line with parchment paper and set aside.

Place the softened butter, flour, superfine sugar, and coffee essence in a bowl. Break the eggs in and then beat everything together until smooth and well blended.

Spread the mixture into the prepared baking dish, leveling it smooth with the back of a spoon.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden and cooked through. Remove the cake from the baking dish and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.

For the icing, mix the butter, powdered sugar and coffee essence together in a bowl until smooth and well blended.

Spread the icing evenly over the top of the cake. Arrange the walnut pieces all over the top. Cut into wedges and serve.
