Bonfire Treats

There were quite a few bonfire and firework parties around and about last night. Hope that everyone that went to one had a great time and kept safe.
Suzie let out the odd yelp when she heard the fireworks, which wasn't too bad - at least she was more in tune than Wagner was last night!!!

Here's my Coffee Walnut Cake - looks good eh??? Don't be fooled, it actually looks better than it tastes!!
I was disappointed with the cakes, they came out a bit flat and didn't taste of much. The best bit was the coffee buttercream - I had to stop myself from eating the whole lot with a spoon, straight from the mixer!!
Here's the recipe if you want to try it out.

This is definitely toffee for grown ups - it has that strong, almost bitter, black treacle flavour - and it's hard to stop eating it once you start!
It's very easy to make, with just 3 basic ingredients.
