  • Preheat the oven to 350°F Grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan, and line it with waxed paper.
  • Sift the flour and dry ingredients into a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Blend the egg whites in a large bowl until foamy, and blend in the cream of tartar. Gradually add 1/4 cup of sugar, beating until the whites are stiff and glossy. Set aside.
  • Combine 3/4 cup sugar, butter, yolks, and coffee granules in a large bowl and beat at medium speed until fluffy.
  • Reduce speed to low. Add the flour, yogurt, and coffee alternately to the egg yolk mixture, beating until blended after each.
