for preparing cake:
Sift maida and baking powder.
in a large bowl take butter sugar,egg and beat with a hand beater or a fork till well blended.
add little by little sifted flour .do not add the flour at once.this doesn't make ur cake fluffy.

add bru instant coffee.beat for 2 minutes or till well blended.
take an oven proof dish and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
pour the batter into the dish.
pre heat the oven at 350 F.
bake for 20 min or till an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
transfer it into a plate.
let it cool for atleast 15 to 20 min.

to make the swirl on the cake:
