Preheat the oven to 180˚C (160˚C fan for fan assisted ovens)/ Gas Mark 4.

Mix the eggs, oil, water and Classic Coffee Cake Mix and whisk (by hand or electric mixer) for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy. Fold the walnuts into the mix and pour the cake mixture evenly into your two greased cake tins.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 23-28 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Leave the cakes in the tins for 2-3 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack and leave to cool.

Ice one of the cakes with 1/2 of the coffee icing over. Place the second cake on top and spread the remaining icing over the top, creating deep swirls using the back of a teaspoon. Arrange the walnut halves around the edge of the cake and dust lightly with cocoa powder.
