Coffee layer cake

This is a quick and easy recipe to make a butter cake with layers of coffee in it. I made 2 cakes using the below recipe. I frosted one with buttercream icing and the other one I shared with my colleagues without any frosting.

  1. Cake flour - 4 cups
  2. Baking powder - 3 tsp
  3. Sugar - 2 cups
  4. Egg - 6
  5. Butter - 300gm
  6. Milk - 1+1/4 cup
  7. Vanilla extract - 2 tbs
  8. Instant coffee powder - 1 tsp
  9. Brown food color - few drops
  10. Orange food color - few drops

  1. Preheat the oven to 145 deg Celsius
  2. Place parchment paper in your pan( I used a 8x8 inch square pan and 9 x 3 inch loaf pan. )
  3. Mix all ingredients which are in room temperature
  4. Beat on medium for approximately 3 minutes in a hand mixer
  5. Move half of the batter to a bowl(A), divide the rest into two seperate bowl ( B and C)
  6. Leave first half there
  7. Mix coffee powder and brown color to the bowl B
  8. Mix orange color to bowl C
  9. Pour half of bowl A batter to the center of the pan. If using rectanglular pan, pot the batter in line at the center
  10. Pour bowl B batter to the center of the pan above the bowl A batter
  11. Pour bowl C batter similar to above
  12. Pour the remaining bowl A batter similar to above
  13. Place the pan in the oven without shaking the pan
  14. Bake for 1 hr 15 min or until the skewer comes out clean when dipped in cake center.

Note : If you are using a big deep single pan for cooking, you might have to bake for longer
