Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Heat the milk in a small bowl or jug. Stir the coffee powder into it to dissolve then set aside. Mix the bicarbonate of soda into the sour cream.

Beat the butter and sugar and add the eggs, one at a time. Beat well. Sift the dry ingredients together and fold into the egg mixture, along with the sour cream and the milk with the coffee in it.

Spoon half of the batter into a greased and lined loose- bottomed 23cm cake tin. Mix the topping ingredients together and sprinkle half over the batter. Top with the remaining batter. Sprinkle with the remaining topping. Bake in a preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Serve slightly warm with coffee, and fresh figs on the side.
