Cooking Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°c. Grease and line 2x20cm cake pans with baking paper.
  2. Divide the mixed batter between the prepared cake pans then place in the oven.
  3. Allow to bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  4. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  5. To make the butter cream, whip the butter until light and fluffy then mix in the icing sugar and cocoa powder.
  6. Whip until the butter cream is smooth and creamy then add the coffee, tablespoon at a time taking care not to thin out the butter cream too much.
