1. In a medium sized bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs, then the flour and instant coffee. If you’re using walnuts, stir most of them into the batter, putting some aside to few to decorate the cake later. Transfer to a microwave-proof dish and cook on full power for two mins. Turn the power down to medium and cook for another two minutes.

2. Check to see if the cake is cooked. It should be risen and spring back when touched. If the cake needs a little longer, cook on medium for just one minute more at a time, making sure to check after each minute until the cake is cooked. Remove the cake from the microwave and allow it to cool.

3. Meanwhile, make the yummy coffee butter cream. Dissolve the coffee in the milk, before adding the butter and icing sugar. Beat until smooth and spread it evenly over the cake. For decoration, add the remaining walnuts.
