Recipe from NMAA Cooks

This is just another version of the simplicity cake I have made; coffee cake. I hate coffee, but I love tea with a slice of coffee cake or loaf. It is heavenly and enough of a pick-me-up to get me through the day. It is so simple and quick to make, no effort or energy required for those of you who need three cups of coffee a day! Wake up everyone to this great idea!

  • 2 tblsp margarine or butter
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla flavouring
  • 3 1/2 tsp of instant coffee dissolved in 3 tblsp of boiling water, cooled
Grease cake tin. Heat oven to 180'C fan-forced. Melt butter. Beat in other ingredients. Put in tin. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer can be inserted and come out clean. Serve with coffee or tea.
