Being Nigella – Coffee and Walnut Splodges!

I wish I was as sexy as Nigella and could sit here and tell you all that I licked the spoon clean in a seductive manner. But no, I made these quickly on a Monday evening as a treat for the office friends, with flour on my face and greasy hair – so attractive. 

These are a coffee infused biscuits for the coffee haters. The flavour is extremely subtle and the walnut cuts through nicely. The biscuit itself is more of a cakey texture which feels light on the palette! If you’re totally against coffee you could definitely swap it for cocoa powder or even just add some vanilla extract! 


  • 250g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 200g butter, softened
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 60g brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp instant espresso powder
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 200g walnuts, roughly chopped
– Preheat oven to 180°C.
– Cream butter and sugars. Add coffee and eggs.
– Gently fold in flour, baking powder and walnuts. Mix until just combined!
– Dollop tablespoons of the sticky mixture onto lined baking trays. Ideally, leave a considerable space between the splodges as they spread out quite a bit!
– Bake for 12 minutes until golden and firm to touch, then leave to cool!
These are super easy to cook and even easier to wolf down! – I hope you enjoy!
