Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 6-7 inch round cake tin and keep aside.
  2. In a large bowl, sift all the dry ingredients – flours, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder and instant coffee.
  3. Whisk all the wet ingredients (egg, whole milk, melted butter, vanilla, brewed coffee) along with the 3/4 cup castor sugar until you get a smooth and fluffy mixture.
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients. Pour in the whisked wet mix and mix gently to combine well until no big lumps of flour remain.
  5. Scrape out the batter into the prepared baking tin. Sprinkle the walnut pieces and sugar uniformly over the top and bake for 40 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
  6. Cool in the tin for 15 minutes. Loosen the cake in the tin by running a knife around the circumference of the cake, turn over into a dish. Cool for another 30 minutes on a wire rack. Slice into wedges. Serve with coffee or tea.
Recipe Notes

Allow the melted butter and the brewed coffee to reach room temperature before mixing with the egg and other wet ingredients, so you don’t end up scrambling the egg.
