Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease an 18cm rectangular baking tin or a 20cm round cake tin.
Sift together salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, flour and bicarbonate of soda.
Beat margarine and sugar together, then stir in treacle and eggs. Mix in sifted ingredients. Stir in hot coffee; batter will be thin.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool before serving.
