Tips & Tricks
  • This recipe makes a BIG cake, so we recommend a deeper cake tin. Don't have one? No problem! Either halve the mixture to cook in two batches or halve the recipe to create a smaller cake - just make sure to halve the cooking time too!
  • The whipped coffee cream on this cake really packs a coffee punch! Try topping your cake with whipped cream for a more subtle alternative.
  • Take your coffee cake to the next level by topping with some maple toasted walnuts! Just add half a cup of Pams Walnuts to a small fry pan over medium heat and toast until fragrant. Drizzle over some Pams Finest Maple Syrup and a pinch of sea salt. Leave to cool before decorating your cake!
  • For an extra hit of maple flavour, add ¼ cup Pams Finest Maple Syrup to the cake batter when you add the butter & eggs.


  1. In a large mixing bowl whisk the flour, half the instant coffee and the brown sugar until everything is well combined and there are no lumps.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs into the melted butter. Add the butter mix to the dry ingredients and fold into a smooth batter.
  3. Pour the batter into a lined cake tin and bake in the oven at 180°C for 1 hour 15 mins. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
  4. Add the remaining instant coffee and the caster sugar to a medium mixing bowl with 1/3 cup of warm water. Beat until stiff and glossy like thick meringue.
  5. When the cake is cool, cut in half horizontally through the middle. Spread a layer of the coffee whip in the middle and sandwich together. Spread the remaining mix over the top of the cake
