but then ANYTHING coffee flavored is a winner in my book. 

Yes, please share with us what you used to bake these treasures and in the meantime zip me the leftovers. 

Yummy. :)

 Well actually I divided it between 3 small 6 inch pans. as I had intended to save 2 in the freezer until the first one was eaten, there's only 2 of us. But in the end I sandwiched the two as you can see. I also managed a  very small 3 inch sponge that I put home made strawberry jam into, which we ate as a sampler. :-)))

If you want to make this with cake and pastry flour it comes out a little lighter, but I tend to use whatever is closest at the time. Also if you use a good margarine (I don't I hate the stuff) but if you do it gives you a better cake to keep in the fridge because of the butter cream,

I have even made it with Bakers flour, it can be made into a chocolate sponge. qahtan
