- 100g margarine
- 100g sugar
- 200g self-raising flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup granulated coffee
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 60ml fresh milk, warmed up
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
This simple cake loaf will especially hit the spot for the coffee lovers. Or if you’re not really a fan of coffee and are worried about caffeine, well don’t worry, use decaf 🙂 . You can have this with a cuppa, warm milk or as a dessert with some custard or maybe ice-cream.
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius/ 350 degrees Fahrenheit/ Gas Mark 4. Line your loaf tin with grease proof paper and grease it then set aside. Get your ingredients ready: 1/4 cup granulated coffee, 200g sifted self-raising flour, 100g sugar and 100g margarine. (I used white margarine here but you can also use the ordinary yellow margarine). Put margarine and sugar in mixing bowl. Beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs (2 eggs), coffee and vanilla essence (1 tsp). Beat until everything is well combined.
- Add sifted flour, 1 tsp baking powder and mix. Add warmed up milk (60ml) and mix again until all the ingredients are combined well. Take set aside greased loaf tin and pour the batter into it. Bake for 40 minutes or until skewer comes out clean. And you’re done, enjoy!!
