Add the instant coffee to the dry ingredients, and stir them all together. Set that bowl aside for now.

In your mixing bowl, beat together 1 1/4 cup sugar with 2 sticks (1 cup) of room temperature butter. Beat these until they are very fluffy.

With the mixer going, you will add 4 eggs (room temperature) one at a time, incorporating each fully before adding the next.

Bake the cake for 70-80 minutes or until it tests done in the center with a tooth pick. Allow it to cool in the pan, on a cooling rack for a few minutes. Then run a thin knife around the edges, and turn it out to cool completely.

Dust with some powdered sugar if you like, or just eat it plain. This also makes a great ingredient for other desserts that use pound cake in them.

Enjoy!
