Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4, 180 deg C, 350 deg F.

In a suitable bowl cream together the sugar and butter until fluffy and light.

Finally, stir in the black coffee.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared cake tin, and bake in the pre-heated oven for 50-60 minutes. Test with a skewer or stick to check the centre is cooked (it should come out clean) before removing from the oven and allowing to cool for 20 minutes. Turn out of the tin and leave to cool on a wire rack.

For the butter icing filling, cream the butter and icing/confectioners’ sugar together until light and fluffy. Gently beat in the melted chocolate and coffee. Carefully slice the the cooled cake into two halves and use the filling to build the cake.

The final stage in following this chocolate layer cake recipe is to make the glace icing. Melt the butter, chocolate and coffee together over a very gentle heat before stirring in the icing sugar to make a smooth mixture. Turn up the heat a little and when the mixture just begins to bubble, pour over the cake and smooth with a hot, wet knife. Use the nuts for decoration.
