225g unsalted butter
225g caster sugar
250g self-raising flour (113)
1tsp baking powder
1tbsp strong coffee mixed with a little hot water
Grease two 20cm cake tins and line. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Mix the butter and sugar. Then add the eggs with a little flour and mix lightly. Then add the sieved flour and baking powder, and give a good mix. Finally mix in the coffee and split between the two tins.
Bake in the oven for approximately 30 mins and leave to cool for a little while in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack (pictured).
Decorate with whatever you fancy. I'm going to make some butter icing and flavour it with a little coffee.
