Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A simple yellow cake is made from scratch, doused with coffee syrup and covered with whipped topping.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder and powdered milk. Set aside.
  • Cream together shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture until incorporated. Batter will be thick.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Prick cake with a fork at 1 inch intervals. Allow to cool.
  • For the glaze: In a saucepan, combine the sugar, water and instant coffee. Bring mixture to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Pour the syrup over the warm cake. Cool thoroughly. Prepare whipped topping according to package directions, then frost cake. Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight before serving.
