Walnut Butter Cake

I had wanted to bake a simple cake for the past few days and when I saw Sonia posted her Walnut Butter Cake  and immediately I felt in love with that cake.  

Whenever I want to bake a simple cake, Walnut Butter Cake always come to my mind  but the recipe which I have been using previously yields lots of eggs in the ingredients.  And when I saw Sonia's ingredients have only 2 eggs, I just got to try it out.  Nowadays I try to cut down eggs consumption in my bakes if I could.

Recipe sourced from Sonia of NasiLemakLover

*makes a 6” round cake 

125g butter (salted), room temp.
80g caster sugar
2 eggs (A size)
1tsp vanilla extract
2tbsp milk
110g cake flour
1tsp baking powder
60g walnut, process in a food processor till fine 


Line paper on the bottom of the cake pan. Sift cake flour and baking powder, set aside
Cream butter, vanilla extract and sugar till fluffy and pale (take about 4mins using hand electric mixer at speed 2).
Add in egg one at a time, mix well with each addition.
Add in flour, walnut and milk, combine well. Sprinkle walnuts on top.
Bake at a pre-heated oven at 170C for 40-45mins or 180C for 30-35mins.

If you want to have some bite of crunch in the cake, just put the walnuts in a plastic bag and pound it with your rolling pin.  No need to process till fine.  Believe me, the cake taste good biting into the walnut bits.  

Indeed, this cake is not that greasy and the sweetness is just right for me too!  But to those who like a little more sweet, you can add extra sugar.

Thank you Sonia!  Love this cake alot!  I will be using this recipe from now on.....
