4 large eggs

2 heaped tsp coffee

8oz caster sugar

8oz butter

8oz self raising flour

2 tsp baking powder

Start by mixing the coffee with the eggs till combined then add the rest of the ingrediants and mix altogether

Put the mixture in 2 greased 8″ 20 cm  tins and pop in the oven for 20 – 25 miniutes at 180c

Take out of the oven and leave to cool for 5 mins then remove from their tins and place on a wire rack to cool completely.

Once they have gone cold you can fill the middle and top  with buttercream, I decorated with some coffee chocolate beans I got from Waitrose you don’t have to use them its your cake put what you like on it


2oz butter

6oz icing sugar

1 tbsp milk

1tbsp camp coffee

To make the buttercream add all the ingredients together and beat till all combined
