  • 1 teaspoon coffee
  • 1 tablespoon boiling water
  • 175g butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons milk


  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon butter, softened (don't melt)
  • 2 tablespoons water (depending on the texture of the icing that you like)
  • 2 teaspoons coffee dissolved in 1 tablespoons of hot water.


  • Dissolve coffee in the boiling water.
  • Cream butter, sugar, coffee mixture and vanilla essence until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Sift flour and baking powder together and fold a little at a time into the creamed mixture.
  • Stir in milk.
  • Pour into a lined warm sc.
  • I used baking paper that was scrunched up and slightly wet. I also sprayed the baking paper with coconut oil.


  • I cooked it on high for one hour, then low for about 30 minutes. I think next time I will cook on high for about 30 minutes and an hour or so on low. My slow cooker (6L) runs pretty hot.
  • Once cooled, add the icing... as per icing ingredients mixed
  • Crush some walnuts on top to decorate.
  • Sit back with a cuppa coffee and slice of cake and enjoy!!!!
