Looking for a great cake to eat with your warm cup of coffee or of Sweet Potato Latte? This cake is delicately flavoured with coffee and the nuts brings a nice crunch. Plus, it’s gluten-free AND has a great fluffy texture. You have to try it, believe me.

Here I put a frozen red berries topping but you can add any fruit you like or make a chocolate ganache to spread after baking. It will be an absolute delight. It is also perfect without any topping, so if you dont have things to put on top, no worries!
