  • 170g butter
  • 3 x large eggs
  • I tsp Baking powder

    1. Preheat oven to 150c (fan) and Line/butter cake tins
    2. Sponge Process all ingredients together
    3. Beat in 1 tbsp of the coffee mixture and then add up to another tbsp little by little until the mixture drops easily off the spoon. Keep the rest of the coffee mixture for the icing.
    4. Spoon the mixture evenly between the 2 tins , level the top and bake for 40 minutes (check after 30) or until a skewer comes out cleanly. Then cool.
    5. Cream Make sure coffee mixture is cooled before adding to butter
