Cake Ingredients
2 cups Plain or All purpose Flour
2 cups Fine Granulated Sugar
1/4 teaspoons Salt
1 cup Butter (unsalted - softened)
3 Tablespoons - 4 TBsps Instant Coffee Crystals + 1 cup boiling water
1/2 cups Buttermilk or Soured Milk
2 large Eggs
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 teaspoons Vanilla

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees OR 176 C. 

Grease and flour two OR ONE BIG round baking pans.

In a large bowl, mix sugar, flour, and 1/4 teaspoon salt and bakind soda. Set aside. 

Melt butter in a pot over medium-low heat. While that’s melting, add 3 tablespoons instant coffee to 1 cup boiling water. Set aside. 

Once butter has melted, add coffee mixture to the butter in the pot. Let it come to a boil for about ten seconds, then turn off the heat. Set aside for just a minute.

In a separate bowl, add buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla. Mix until well combined.

Pour the butter/coffee mixture into the flour mixture. Stir the mixture together gently. The purpose here isn’t to mix it together perfectly, but to cool down the heat before adding the egg mixture.

Add in the egg mixture and stir gently until well combined. Then pour into pans. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until set. for one big pan took me almost 35-40mins

Allow to cool completely.

1/2 CUP + 3/4 CUP Butter unsalted ..softened
3 3/4 cups Icing Sugar / Powdered Sugar (more or less according to ur consistency)
2 Tablespoons Instant Coffee Crystals
3 tablespoons Dark Cocoa Powder (I used Hintz)
1/4 teaspoons Salt
4 Tablespoons Heavy Cream

Combine all icing ingredients ( I used my Kitchen aid), then ice the cake. Chill for an hour before serving. 

I layered my I had some frosting in the middle and lots' around it as well:)
