Coffee and Macadamia Cake

Toasted macadamia nuts give this cake a delicious crunch and a nice change from the usual walnuts. It's a truly divine combination when paired with coffee and mascarpone.

  • 75g plain + 25g toasted macadamia nuts

  • 175g self-raising flour

  • another 30ml strong espresso

Method

  • 1.
