From "Symply Too Good To Be True 3"by Annette Syms. Personally, I find mudcake to be too oily and heavy. But this reduced fat method has won me over. Makes a very satisfiying chocolaty dense cake.

- 125 g light margarine
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
