Salted caramel mocha cake

I got the basic recipe for a mocha marble loaf from here


  • 175g butter, softened
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs, large
  • 175g self raising flour
  • 2 tsps of instant coffee dissolved in 1 tbsp boiling water
  • 2 tbsps cocoa powder mixed to a paste with a little boiling water

I won’t walk you through the cake batter recipe; cream the butter and sugar, add eggs, fold in flour.

Split into two bowls, add the cocoa powder mix to one and the coffee mix to the other.

Layer into the loaf tin and using a skewer zigzag the mixture so it marbles. Cook at 160 Celsius for 55 minutes.

Once cool slice the cake in half.

Mix some butter icing up, I don’t measure I just stick some in until the icing looks right. I then added some Monin salted caramel coffee syrup.

Layer the icing across one half and pop the lid back on:

Melt a Lindt salted caramel bar or rolos in the microwave, add some boiling water and mix in some icing sugar. Stab holes in the top of the cake and drizzle the glaze over the top. Mash some more Lindt bars or rolos and decorate the top with them.
