The Food Post | Mini Coffee Cakes

I can't take credit for this recipe unfortunately, it comes from my boyfriends Mum. Ever since we've been together he's loved her coffee cake and eventually I tried it and loved it as well. It's the perfect balance of coffee - not too much, but just enough to taste it. Eventually it stopped being a huge cake as often and went down into little lunch boxed sizes cuties to take into work. After 3+ months of living together I finally decided to try making them myself...


Ingredients
Cake:
4oz Self Raising Flour
4oz Caster Sugar
4oz Butter
2 eggs
1 tablespoon of Camp Coffee

Icing:
Icing sugar, butter and camp coffee

Method
1. Preheat the over to 190 degrees.
2. Mix the butter and sugar until fluffy.
3. Add beaten eggs with Camp Coffee.
4. Fold in the flour.
5. Put a tablespoon in each cake case in a cake tray. Bake for around 15 minutes.

6. Once cool, make the icing. I tend to do this ad hoc so can't really give measurements.
7. I mix the butter and icing sugar. Then the camp coffee until I get the right balance of sugar and coffee.
8. Take a teaspoon of the icing onto each cake.
Voila!

Let me know if you make these cakes and give them a go, I'd love to see!
