We make, the best Coffee and Walnut Cake…so our customers say!
You can read some of their reviews here.
Coffee and walnut are two deliciously compatible flavours. They work together very well because they both have bittersweet characteristics that combine beautifully; being both aromatic and fragrant.
Our Coffee & Walnut cake is a ‘classic’ and one of our most popular.
The making of our coffee & walnut cake is both an art and a science. Our bakers follow an expertly honed process consisting of four stages to make what we think is the perfect version of this established favourite:
Stage 1. Our coffee sponge is made with local free-range eggs, English butter, real coffee and a generous dose of walnut pieces. We don’t use pre-mixes. Everything is made from scratch.
Stage 2. Once out of the oven the sponge is carefully drizzled with coffee syrup. To provide extra coffee flavour:
- No artificial flavourings
- We don’t use ‘Camp’ coffee ( a coffee substitute containing 26% chicory essence, used by many bakeries for coffee flavour)
- Only REAL coffee. Yes, we brew up fresh ground coffee (like making a giant cafetiere of fresh coffee)
Stage 3. the sponge sandwich is filled and topped with a rich coffee buttercream (again, we use real coffee)
Stage 4. and finally decorated with yet more walnut pieces.
Proper hand made cake. We don’t take short cuts. No pre-mixes. Only natural flavours and colours. No compromise.
We call the cake ‘celestial coffee & walnut cake’ because for cake-lovers it is coffee heaven and the best coffee and walnut cake out there.
