Ingredients

  • 175g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • 5 tbsp single cream
  • 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 75g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 175g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp fine salt

For the frosting:

  • 150g mascarpone
  • 5 tbsp icing sugar
  • cocoa powder, for dusting

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170˚C, gas mark 3. Grease a 900g (2lb) loaf tin and line with baking parchment. Heat the cream and coffee in a microwave (or small pan) until warm, stir to dissolve the coffee and cool. In a separate bowl, mix 1 tsp of the coffee cream with the mascarpone for the frosting and chill until needed.

  2. In a large bowl, using electric beaters, cream the butter with the two sugars for 3-4 minutes, until pale and fl uffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla and the remaining coffee cream.

  3. Fold in the flour and salt until you have a smooth batter. Scrape into the tin; bake for 45-50 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack; cool to room temperature.

  4. Meanwhile, make the frosting. Sift the icing sugar over the chilled coffee mascarpone and whisk with electric beaters for 1-2 minutes, until silky; chill again until needed. Spread the frosting over the cooled cake and dust lightly with cocoa powder just before serving.
