@Shermie are the lower case 't' s in this recipe teaspoons and the capital 'T's tablespoons?

N.B. I added CookingBites Recipe Challenge tag as I think it is intended as an entry. Also Recipe prefix to title. To enter the challenge you need to put a link to this recipe in the Challenge thread. Please ask if you need help to do that.

I have a recipe that's very similar to @Shermie 's, but it uses 2 or 3 eggs, which you separate, whip the whites and fold them into the batter at the end. It is a very good coffee cake.

Ok, this is another terminology misunderstanding. Coffee cake is a cake that you eat with coffee, not necessarily a cake that contains coffee.

Right! There is no coffee in it at all. Well, there's no lobster in Lobster sauce either. It's called that because the sauce is or was served over lobster. :wink:

I see, but Cakes or other recipes in this Challenge must have the coffee inside, any quantity/form. I'm sorry @Shermie, but I can't consider your cake in this coffee challenge.
Would you like to enter with another recipe, maybe?

Yes. Lower case t's are for teaspoon. Upper case T's are for tablespoon. Thanks. :wink:

Yep! Its confusing - its a bit like teacakes in the UK which have no tea in them (there are also two different types):
