Dissolve Nescafe in hot milk..Now mix all the ingredients for the cake together and beat at at medium speed for 3 mnts, or until the batter turns pale n smooth..Do not over beat..( Since I used 1 and a half measurement today,in the picture you can see 3 eggs..and I poured a little amount of batter into a smaller baking tin, as well)... Pour into a greased ring mould...Bake in a preheated moderate oven for almost 35 mnts or until the cake is springy to touch when touched....Remove from the oven ..Let cool down for 10 mnts..Turn out onto a cake stand.
Now make the coffee frost, by mixing all the ingredients for the frosting and beat well to obtain a smooth frosting.. Do not use too much liquid...Pour it immedieately over the cake while it's still warm..Let the frosting drip down or cover it completely....Slice into rounds when cool..Dust with icing sugar.
