Austrian Coffee Cake Recipe

Austrian Coffee Cake Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 6

100 g/4 oz butter, softened

100 g/4 oz caster (superfine) sugar
2 eggs
100 g/4 oz/1 cup self-raising (self-rising) flour
30 ml/2 tbsp instant coffee powder or granules
45 ml/3 tbsp water
15 ml/1 tbsp schnapps or brandy
150 ml double (heavy) cream

30 ml/2 tbsp toasted flaked (slivered) almonds


Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift the flour over the surface and fold in with a metal spoon. Run into a greased 900 ml ring tin (pan). Bake in a preheated oven at 180C/350F/gas mark 4 for 25 minutes until risen and golden and the cake is beginning to shrink away from the sides of the tin. Turn out on to a wire rack to cool. Transfer to a serving plate. Blend together the coffee, water and schnapps or brandy. Spoon all over the cake, a little at a time so it all soaks in. Whip the cream and smother all over the cake. Scatter the nuts over and chill until ready to serve.
