Coffee and walnut cupcakes

Coffee and walnut cake is one of the Mr's favourites, so the Mini Mes and I decided to bake a batch of cupcakes especially for him - they are very simple to make and ideal for kids.

As we were lucky enough to receive a box packed with some lovely bakeware equipment to review recently, I thought it was the perfect recipe to put the Great British Bakeware bun tray to the test too!


For the cakes

  • 120g butter
  • 120g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 125g flour
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of coffee 
  • granules dissolved in 50ml of water

For the icing

  • 200g Icing sugar
  • 100g Butter
  • Remaining dissolved coffee as required 
  • Walnuts for decorating

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees before you begin and remember to leave the cakes to cool before decorating.

The Great British Bakeware 12 Cup Deep Bun Tray from George Wilkinson is made with Glidex, the ultimate performing non-stick, making it easy to remove the cakes once cooked and to clean after baking. Any residue can literally be wiped off without the need to scrub!

The tray is flake and scratch resistant and almost indestructible - with a 15 year guarantee you know this product is great quality and it felt and looked it too.

You can buy your own on Amazon with free delivery just here!
