Simple Coffee Cake


For the Cake:

225g Butter

225g sugar

4 eggs

225g flour

3 round teaspoons baking powder

3 teaspoons Nescafe (coffee) and 3 teaspoons condensed milk dissolved in 1/2 cup hot water

1 teaspoon vanilla

Coffee icing:

125g margarine

250g icing sugar

3 teaspoons Nescafe dissolved in 1 tablespoon hot water



1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F/175 C. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch cake pan.

2. First make the coffee and set aside to cool.

3.Cream butter and sugar till light and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg. Add vanilla.

4.Fold in the flour alternately with the coffee.

5. Bake at 180 C for about 30-40 minutes till cooked. A skewer or toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake should come out clean with just a bit of moisture and a crumb or two.

Coffee Icing:

Cream the butter and icing sugar well and add the coffee and mix well.


Variation: Instead of coffee butter-cream frosting try chocolate cream frosting. The combination of coffee cake and chocolate cream is delicious!
