Can't go past coffee essence can you? Coffee cake never tastes right without it is my sister's recipe:

Rachel's Easy Coffee Cake

170g flour
2 tsp BP
1 c sugar
Sift these into a bowl. Melt 60 g butter into a measuring cup. Add 2 eggs then fill cup with milk. (you need 1 cup liquid all up) Tip this into dry ingredients and mix for 2 minutes. Add 1 tbsp coffee essence and beat some more until well combined, Bake 1/2 hour in ring tin - I usually double this mixture for a large cake because it goes fairly quickly!
Edited to add - make buttercream with coffee essence and ice the top, or fill the cake with it when cold :)

Do you mean a cake with coffee flavouring, or a cake to have with coffee?

Yes -in NZ we usually mean a coffee-flavoured cake but in the US it means a buttery cake often with a crunchy topping served with coffee....

Made charlieb2's cake this morning for visitors - we all loved it.I'll definately be adding this one to my repertoire.Only cooked it for 40 mins though and I think next time, I'll start checking after 35.Came away from edge of tin nicely.(I used sour cream in place of yoghurt which worked well). Also turned out after about 5mins.

1 tbsp. instant coffee
1 c. boiling water
2 c. sifted flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
6 egg whites (3/4 c.)
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 c. sugar
6 egg yolks (1/2 c.)
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Dissolve coffee in boiling water, or use 1 cup strong coffee; cool. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar in large bowl at high speed until very soft mounds begin to form; add 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, and continue beating until very stiff, straight peaks form when beater is raised - do not underbeat. Set aside.
Beat egg yolks in large mixer bowl until blended; gradually add sugar and vanilla and beat at high speed until thick and lemon coloured, 4-5 minutes. Add dry ingredients alternately with cooled coffee, beginning and ending with dry ingredients; blend thoroughly after each addition. With electric mixer, use low speed. Fold yolk mixture 1/4 at a time into stiff egg whites; fold about 15 strokes after each addition. After last addition, continue folding just until evenly blended.
Pour into ungreased 10 inch tube pan and cut through batter 3-4 times to remove large air bubbles. Bake in 350 degree oven 60-70 minutes. Invert immediately and cool in pan at least 1 hour. Frost and sprinkle with more chopped nuts, if desired.
Coffee Icing: Cream 2 tablespoons butter; blend in 2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee; cream well. Gradually add 2 tablespoons plus 2-3 teaspoons milk until of spreading consistency.
