Beat butter until light and fluffy with electric beater. Add sugar and beat for another minute. Gradually add the beaten eggs, coffee water, alternating with the self-raising flour and beating until the mixture is smooth and light. Tip into the prepared cake tin.

Prick holes all over the cake and spoon the coffee syrup over the cake while still warm.

Altered ingredient amounts.
My eggs were large, so I used classic Victoria Sponge proportions of 110g butter/ flour/ sugar, plus 1tsp baking powder. I also reduced the water for the coffee to 1 tablespoon. - 25 Nov 2009
