Light in Flavour

When you want a delicate sweetness in your baking, using White Sugar or Caster Sugar can provide a subtle sweetness that enhances the other flavours without overpowering them.

Fruity

Using fruit can add a natural, fruity sweetness to baking, creating a refreshing, light flavour or adding sweet tartness. White Sugar or Caster Sugar in baking, allows the flavour of the fruit to shine and Jam Setting Sugar preserves the taste of fruit in vibrant jams.

Nutty

Coconut Sugar bring a subtle nuttiness to baked goods, elevating the taste with a mild, natural sweetness and pairs beautifully with tropical flavours.

Spiced

Using sugars with spices like cinnamon, ginger, licorice or chai can lend a warm, aromatic sweetness to baking.

Caramel

Utilising brown sugars or incorporating caramelised sugar syrups creates a richer, deeper flavor profile, adding a hint of caramel or toffee-like taste.

Chocolate

Chocolate adds a decadent richness to baked goods with its deep cocoa flavour, making it perfect for indulgent treats. Try adding a deep flavoured Brown Sugar to the mix for enhanced chocolate flavour.

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C (reduce to 160 for fan forced).

Grease and line a 23-25cm cake tin with baking paper.

Dissolve the coffee granules in water, then place all ingredients into a food processor and process until well combined and smooth.
Pour the mixture into the cake tin. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour 20 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack and when completely cold.

Icing Method

Place Chelsea Icing Sugar and cocoa powder in a medium bowl and stir to combine.

Add softened butter and pour some of the hot water over the top.

Mix together, adding more water as required to achieve a smooth, spreadable consistency.

Spread over the top of the cooled cake.

Note: This is a very runny mixture - don't be alarmed the first time you make it.
