Coffee & Rum Butter Cake

There was a sudden rain this evening, I didn't get to go to pasar malam, but a sudden mood brought me to bake this cake. I modified the basic butter cake recipe from Wendy Kor's Cake Talk in order to get this strong flavorful cake.

250g butter
200g castor sugar
1/2 tsp salt

5 eggs

280g superfine flour
1 tsp baking powder

50ml warm milk (or 50ml water + 1 tbsp milk powder)
1 tsp instant coffee powder (or 2 tsp instant coffee powder if without coffee paste)
1 tsp coffee paste
2 tbsp rum

(E) - optional
2 - 4 tbsp rum
  1. Cream ingredients (A) until light and fluffy
  2. Add ingredients (B) one at a time and blend well
  3. Sift ingredients (C) then add into (2). Mix til well combined
  4. Finally add ingredients (D) and mix well
  5. Transfer to 2 loaf pan. Bake at 180 for 40 minutes
  6. Brush (E) all over cake once cake cool completely

I love the aroma from this coffee & rum combination, it made the entire kitchen smell so good. Once it was cool, while I was going to brush the rum, little girl came to ask for a small piece, then returned again for a bigger slice, so can u imagine how good it is ;)
