Personal notes: 

starbucks VIA BOLD blend– my cake was baked for 55 mins
– i used 9g of Starbucks VIA extra bold blend and realise this is a good weight to achieve the true coffee aroma in a cake. however as the blend is very strong, i needed to increase the amount of sugar to 63g
– please refer to my earlier tricolour ogura cake post for tips on baking a successful ogura cake
