Moist Coffee Loaf Cake is a lovely easy, simple recipe and full of flavor. The aroma when this is baking is really out of this world!


  • 225 g or 1 3/4 cups Plain / All purpose flour (sieved)

  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

  • 175 g or 3/4 cup softened butter

  • 200 g or 1 cup regular sugar

  • 2/3 Cup or 150 ml Milk

  • 2 Large eggs (lightly beaten)

  • 4 Teaspoons of coffee granules dissolved in 1 Tablespoon hot water.


  • Heat oven to 170C, 325F. Grease and line your baking tin. See here for how to line.
  • Get all your ingredients ready, i.e dissolve the coffee, sieve the flour, and add the salt and baking powder to the flour etc.
  • Start with making the cake batter by creaming the butter and sugar until a pale light color.
  • 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.
  • Keeping the mixer on a slow speed, add the coffee mixture, milk and the rest of the flour.
  • Transfer the cake mixture to the greased and lined loaf tin. Then place in the oven for 1 hour to 1 hour 5 minutes. Check to see if it is cooked, using a skewer. Every oven varies, so keep an eye on your cake!
  • 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.
