      This cake made a great change from chocolate, it was light and spongy and the texture reminded me of a 'rum baba'. I drizzled half the coffee syrup over one side of the cake and let it soak in before turning the sponge over and doing the other side. Thanks for posting this one Elly - it's really good!
