Cappuccino cake bars!

Another weekend, another baking challenge. This weeks recipe was from my BBC Good Food: Bakes & Cakes book that my parents got me for christmas. It's got some really nice things in it, we were limited as to what we could make based on the ingredients we had in the house (the food shop's tomorrow!).

None the less this one took our fancy anyway. We decided to half the ingredients to avoid the risk of making too many and wasting some. It was a good job as well as the recipe makes loads, even halving it we managed to make 16 bars!

It's a really simple recipe and they taste amazing, the perfect afternoon snack with a cup of tea!

We used:
   •  100g softened butter
   •  1/2 tsp cocoa powder
   •  1 rounded tbsp of coffee granules
   •  100g caster sugar
   •  2 eggs
   •  100g of self-raising flower
   •  1/2 tsp baking powder

For the icing, the recipe included white chocolate which we didn't have so we just made a standard butter cream icing and dusted it with cocoa powder. Simples! Literally all you have to do is heat the oven to 160 fan, grease and line a baking tin, mix all the ingredients together, level it out and shove it in the oven for 20 minutes. Voila!
