Warmth broiler to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Line and oil 2 x 18cm sandwich tins. Add the sugar and spread to a bowl and rush until cushioned and pale. 

Whisk the eggs in a mug with a fork, at that point add them bit by bit to the blend with 1 tbsp of flour each time. (Ensure you don't utilize all the flour.) When the eggs have been completely joined in with the general mish-mash, include the remainder of the flour and the heating powder and crease it in tenderly. 

Add the broke up espresso to the blend, despite everything collapsing. Separation into the sandwich tins and cook for 25-30 min until risen and firm and a stick embedded into the center tells the truth. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 mins at that point turn out onto a wire rack to cool totally. Can be solidified at this stage. 

In the interim make the icing by beating the icing sugar with the margarine until light and soft, at that point include the broke down espresso. Whisk at that point spread and put to the other side until prepared to ice the cake. 

When the wipes have totally cooled, spread a large portion of the what tops off an already good thing of one (leaving around half for the top) and spread the strawberry jam on the base of the other, if utilizing. Sandwich together, spread the rest of the good to beat all. Brighten with pecans, or fruits on the off chance that you like.
