Makes 15

INGREDIENTS

250g/9oz plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
large pinch of salt
2tsp ground cinnamon
115g/4oz butter, softened
150g/5½oz caster sugar, plus 2tbsp
1 large egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
150ml/5 fl oz buttermilk

Coffee Filling:
115g/4oz unsalted butter, softened
85g/3oz full-fat soft cheese
1 tbsp strong black coffee
280g/10oz icing sugar, sifted

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 180c/350g/GM4. Line 2-3 large baking sheets with baking paper. Sift together the plain flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt, and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon.

Place the butter and the 150g/5½oz caster sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric whisk until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract followed by half the flour mixture and then the buttermilk.. Stir in the rest of the flour mixture and mix until thoroughly incorporated.

Pipe or spoon 30 mounds of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets, spaced well apart to allow for spreading. Mix together the rest of the cinnamon with the 2 tbsp caster sugar and sprinkle liberally over the mounds. Bake in the preheated oven , one sheet at a time, for 10-12 minutes until risen and just firm to the touch. Cool for five minutes then using a palette knife, transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

For the filling, place the butter, soft cheese and coffee in a bowl and beat together until well blended. Gradually beat in the icing sugar until smooth.

To assemble, spread or pipe the coffee filling on the flat side of half of the cakes. Top with the rest of the cakes.
