  2. Prepare the base by mixing together the flour with sugar, coffee, salt, vanillin and baking powder.
  3. Add melted butter and work with a wooden spoon or by hand.

  7. On the bottom of the mold, create a layer of 2 cm crumbs. Compact them slightly, to make them coarsely join together.

  9. Bake at 180° C for 40 minutes. If necessary, cover with aluminum foil.
