Om nom nom, can't stop thinking about those coffee cakes. Deeeelicious. Want a recipe?
Coffee and Walnut Fudge Cupcakes
4oz caster sugar 4oz self raising flour, sifted
2 eggs, beaten pinch salt 1tsp coffee dissolved in 1 tsp boiling water
50g walnut pieces 4oz butter 2tbsp milk Icing sugar to taste
Makes 8 cupcakes
For the cakes
Cream butter and sugar
Beat in eggs and flour in thirds alternatively until smooth
Beat in 3/4 coffee syrup and half the walnut pieces
Bake for 14 minutes at 170'C
Leave in the baking tray for 5 minutes to cool slightly and then remove to a wire rack.
For the fudge
Melt butter on a low heat with the milk and remainder of the coffee syrup (or a bit more to taste)
At this point I measure the icing sugar by eye, but you're looking for it to be thick and smooth, but not solid (as it is still warm and should solidify as it cools)
Pipe on fudge while still lukewarm (should be warm enough to be pipeable but cool enough to hold its shape as you pipe) and top with a walnut half.
