  • 1/2 cup(s) buttermilk

Cream eggs and sugar together. Stir in buttermilk, water, and coffee and set aside. In a separate bowl sift together remaining dry ingredients.

Stir egg mixture into dry ingredients, then mix in melted butter.

Add more water or buttermilk if necessary, but batter should be thick.
