  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C (fan). Grease and line a 8” square baking tin with baking parchment.

  2. Step 2:

    Put all of the cake ingredients into a food mixer and mix for a few minutes until fully combined (or use handheld electric beaters). Gently pour the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the top with the back of a spoon.

  3. Step 3:

    Bake in the pre-heated oven for 35-40 mins until golden and risen (if in doubt test with a skewer). Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 5 mins before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. Step 4:

    Make the icing by mixing the dissolved coffee into the mascarpone and adding the Truvia. Be careful not to over beat.

  5. Step 5:

    Gently spread the icing over the cooled cake and top each portion square with a walnut to decorate. Enjoy!
