Walnut cake

The world cup fever has been  so ecstatic that every cricket fan challenged their own boundaries.  I wasn’t left out….with every run scored by our team, I cheered our team!! I promised this and that and also promised Dhoni with cakes for every move towards the victory. 

Rachel being my true inspiration for baking, I always like baking her simple tea time cakes. Believe me they are delicious.  I baked her carrot cake, walnut cake and peanut butter blondies for our team …all in a days time!!!

Rachel had a vanilla buttercream filling. If you wish you could refer her recipe for it.

So here is the method I followed:

  • 200g plain flour sifted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 225 castor sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g shelled and chopped walnuts
  • 100 ml milk
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Cream in the butter and sugar. Separate the eggs and add egg yolks and whisk. Sift in the flour, baking powder and fold in. Add the vanilla extract.  In a separate bowl, whisk egg till stiff. Fold in egg white in the cake mix and place in the pregreased tins. Bake the cake for 20 mins-30 mins depending on your oven. Remove from the cake tins in after a couple of minutes. Cool on a cooling rack and slice. Next……enjoy!!!!
Tip: Rachel’s baking is simple and she always has a tip to follow. For this cake she has a tip as well. Make a slight hollow in the centre so that the cake doesn’t form peak when baked..instead will be baked evenly.
