Walnut Cake

This is the second thing that I have baked. Wanted to make a cake, so still have some walnuts at home, so just might as well make use of it. It was taken off from Aunty Yochana blog. The name was Rich Walnut Cake but I don't really find it that rich. So I just named it Walnut Cake lor, hee. It very light, soft and nice. I think I overbaked it a little, so it is a little dry.

Walnut Cake


100 gm. Butter
90 gm. castor sugar
180 gm. beaten eggs
90 gm. cake flour sieved together
5 gm. baking powder
15 gm. ovalette
25 gm. fresh milk
1 tsp. Vanilla essence
90 gm. Roasted walnuts - chopped

Method :

(1) Cream butter and vanilla essence till creamy and pale.
(2) Whisk eggs, castor sugar and ovalette till thick. Pour in fresh milk.
(3) Fold in sieved cake flour and baking powder until thoroughly mixed.
(4) Fold in butter into the egg mixture followed by the chopped walnuts. Leave some chopped walnuts for sprinkling on top of cake batter.
(5) Pour batter into a round 7" tray (lined with paper) and then sprinkle some chopped walnuts on top.
(6) Bake at 175C for about 50 - 60 mins. or until cooked. Test with skewer and if it comes out dry then it's cooked.
