Serves: 8 - 10


225g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
225g Waitrose Light Brown Muscovado Sugar
225ml sunflower oil
2 Waitrose British Blacktail Large Free Range Eggs
6 tsp espresso coffee or 5 tsp instant coffee granules mixed with 1 tbsp water
75ml whole milk

For the filling
100g butter, at room temperature

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Grease and baseline 2x20cm cake tins.

4. Place one of the sponges onto a serving plate and spread over half the mascarpone cream. Place the other sponge on top pressing down gently and then carefully spread the remaining mascarpone cream over the top. Sprinkle with the walnut pieces and serve.
