Classic, tasty and one everyone loves; this cake goes down well with all my family. Always made this when I was younger but now I use brown sugar instead of white caster - the one thing that has not changed is the use of instant coffee granules for achieving the coffee flavour in the cake and the buttercream.
You can replace the caster sugar with soft brown sugar if desired.
Made this for the first time and my husband said it's the best I've ever made! Lovely and most. Just about to make another 😉 - 19 May 2017
