So if you want to know how to make this Coffee Almond Cake for your family or friends, then read on as I show you my recipe!
Coffee Almond Cake
This delicious cake comes with the combination of both sweet and creamy almond frosting with a slightly bittersweet coffee flavor that anyone will enjoy, whether they're a coffee lover or not! The presentation is beautiful just as how yummy it tastes like.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 Celsius degrees). Base and line two seven-inch (18cm) sandwich tins.
Cream the butter/margarine with the sugar until it's light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing everything as you go.
Fold in the flour, baking powder, almonds, and the coffee. Divide the mixture between both the tins.
Bake in the oven for half an hour, or until the cake has risen well and feels firm when touched. Take it out of the oven and allow it to cool on the wire rack.
Cream the butter and sugar for the filling until it's light and fluffy. Stir in the coffee and use one-third of this mixture to sandwich the two caked together.
With the remainder of the spread, pipe medium dots on the borders on top of the cake. Sprinkle coffee powder on top of the cake and add the coffee beans on the side. Serve and enjoy!
Pro-Tips on Making the Coffee Almond Cake
Wondering how to make the Coffee Almond Cake even better? Here are some tips to follow to make it easier to make and serve:
Avoid making baking mistakes and be sure to beat the egg instead of over-mixing everything lightly. The texture may come out dry if that happens!
Be careful when levelling out the cream and sticking both cakes together. I recommend you to start with both cakes out of the cake tins and carefully push them together after you leveled the cream filling on top of one of the cakes.
A coffee cake is perfect with a cup of coffee for the adults, or a glass of milk for children!
To store the cake, cut it into slices and put it in an airtight container or box, leaving it in the fridge for up to three days.
