Cream the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy, gradually add the beaten egg and the flour and the baking powder (do not overbeat)
Add the walnut pieces (75g) into the mix, stir in the diluted coffee and add the milk if you need to. Divide the mixture between two lined sandwich tins (20cm) and bake on the second set of runners down from the top with the cold plain shelf beneath for 20-25 minutes.
Conventional ovens : 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4 for about 25 minutes.
Once baked allow to cool in the tins for 5 minutes and then turn out onto a rack to continue cooling before icing.
To make the icing:
1 tbsp. instant coffee
½ tbsp.. boiling water
75g butter softened
150g icing sugar, sifted
Beat all together and layer between the cooled cake, leaving enough to decorate the top with icing and walnut pieces.
