Coffee Cake

A friend asked me to make a birthday cake for her mum from her grandkids (if you see what I mean). She loves coffee cake, so, not having made one before, I made one using a mish mash of Delia, Nigella, and goodtoknow recipes. I left out the walnuts inside, made a coffee buttercream filling, and added some golden syrup and a little cocoa to the rest of the buttercream to pipe the lettering, and around the edge, though you can't see, are the names of the grandchildren.

'The cake was delicious! x'

'Phew!'
