Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake
For the cake
- 190 g plain flour sifted
- 1 tsp espresso powder I like Nescafé Azera
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 12 tsp pumpkin spice mix
- 200 g 100% natural pumpkin purée
- 100 g caster sugar
- 100 g light brown sugar
- 112 ml sunflower oil
- 2 large free-range eggs
For the frosting
- 275 g unsalted butter at room temperature
- 625 g icing sugar sifted
- 3 tbsp espresso powder dissolved in a small amount of boiling water
- 1 tbsp whole milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the topping
- 5-10 Lotus Biscoff biscuits crushed
- Autumnal decorations of choice
For the cake
- Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F. Grease and line a 20cm cake tin with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, espresso powder, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, and pumpkin spice mix. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or using an electric handheld whisk, blend together the pumpkin purée, caster sugar, brown sugar, oil and eggs.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and use a large balloon whisk (or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment) to combine the ingredients until everything is well incorporated and there are no pockets of flour left.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and bake until it's risen and springy to the touch, about 1hr 15mins. To check it's ready, insert a skewer or cocktail stick into the centre. If it comes out clean, the cake has been baked adequately. If the skewer is wet, the cake need a little longer in the oven.
- Let the cake cool in their tins for 10-15 minutes, before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Use a bread knife to cut the cake in half horizontally.
For the coffee frosting
- In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, or using an electric whisk, cream butter on medium speed until smooth.
- Sift in the icing sugar and put the mixer on a low speed. While the mixer is running, add the 3 tablespoons of coffee mixture, the 1 tablespoon of milk and the 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
- Continue to beat until you have a smooth, creamy frosting with no lumps and is a consistency that holds but is easy enough to spread.
To assemble the cake
- Take one-third of the frosting and sandwich the two cake halves together, one on top of the other.
- Use the remaining frosting to ice the top and sides of the cake.
- Sprinkle over some crushed Biscoff biscuits and add Autumnal decorations of your choice. Serve immediately.
