Coffee and brown sugar tray cake

This cake may not be a winner in the looks department but it sure is a winner in the light, fluffy and tasty department.  One bowl cooking at it's best. Thank you Donna Hay.


1 cup (175g) brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 1/2 cups (375g) self raising flour, sifted
1 1/2 cups (330g) caster sugar
4 eggs
11/2 cups (275g) milk
250g melted unsalted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
60 melted unsalted butter extra


Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius

In a small bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, eggs, milk, melted butter (cooled) and vanilla, whisk until smooth.
Pour half the batter into a greased and lined with baking paper, metal slice tin (20cm x 30cm).
Sprinkle over the coffee granules and half of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.
Pour the remaining batter on top and spread evenly.
Sprinkle remaining brown sugar and cinnamon over and spoon extra melted butter over the top.
Cook for 50-55 minutes until skewer inserted comes out clean.

Delicious on it's own or made into a dessert by topping with good quality ice cream.
