Moist Coffee Pound Cake - Great as a loaf or round cake, this is a soft, moist cake with a lovely gentle coffee taste and perfect with your morning coffee too! | Lovefoodies.com

After spending many years searching for a good ‘pound’ or loaf cake that wasn’t dry, or flavourless, I decided to experiment and make my own recipe up with different flavour combinations to see if I could really get a moist cake. Once you’ve tried this Moist Coffee Loaf Cake recipe, I am sure you will make it time and time again. So here’s the recipe, and enjoy!

This moist coffee loaf cake is perfect with a nice cup of tea or coffee, bake a few and give them as gifts or take along to coffee mornings with your friends. They will enjoy a slice I’m sure! It’s also freezer friendly so you could make a loaf and slice then freeze if you are baking for one or two people. That way, you’ll always have some handy when you get the urge for a slice of cake!

For this moist coffee loaf cake, you can also make in 2 round pans and add some frosting in between the layers and on top. Turn it in to a birthday cake if you wish!
You will need a loaf tin, mine measures 30cm x 12cm, and 8cm deep. (12 inch pan) .The batter will also fit in a 9 inch loaf pan.
Please note cook times will vary if you are not using a regular loaf pan.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup or 175 g softened butter
3/4 cup or 175 ml milk
1  cup or 200 g regular sugar
3 eggs (lightly beaten)
4 Teaspoons of coffee granules dissolved in 1 Tablespoons hot water.
1 3/4 cups or 225 g Plain / All purpose flour (sieved)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Note:
I’ve also made this recipe and swapped the milk for 3 RIPE mashed bananas and the combination with the coffee flavour is lovely!
UPDATE: For those wishing to use bananas, be sure you use a STRONG DARK ROAST blend of coffee, otherwise you won’t be able to taste it in combination with the banana flavours.

Instructions:

1. Heat oven to 160C, Gas 3, 300F. Grease and line your baking tin. See here for how to line.

2. Get all your ingredients ready, i.e dissolve the coffee, sieve the flour, and add the salt and baking powder to the flour etc.

3. Start with making the cake batter by creaming the butter and sugar until a pale light colour.

4. Slowly add the beaten eggs to the mixer, on a low speed setting, a bit at a time. If the mixture starts to curdle or split, add a spoonful of your sieved flour, keep on adding the eggs, and a bit of flour if necessary, until all the eggs are added.

5. Add half the milk with half of the flour, keeping the mixer on a slow speed. Once combined, add the coffee mixture, the rest of the milk and flour.

6 Transfer the cake mixture to the greased and lined loaf tin. Drop it from a 3 cm height onto the work surface to level it out, then place in the oven for 1hr and 20 minutes, check after 1 hour and 5 minutes to see if it is cooked, using a skewer. Every oven varies, so keep an eye on your cake!

7. Have a cup of tea!
Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container. You can also freeze half or all of it, wrap in parchment paper, then place in a zippy bag. Defrost as normal and enjoy! It will still be moist. And there you have our Moist Coffee Loaf Cake!
