Due to the Covid-19 and stay at home safely measures, many new and talented bakers have more available time to bake at home for their loved ones. Hence, many baking ingredients are not readily available in the baking ingredients supply shops. So in my case, I’ll use whatever ingredients that I have in my kitchen to mix and match to bake a cake
This Walnut Butter Cake topped with whole walnuts is easy to bake with ground walnuts and yoghurt. If you don’t like to use ground walnuts, you can change to use chopped walnuts too. So, before adding in the yoghurt, just add the chopped walnuts after folding in the flour. Actually, this cake is similar to the Chia Seeds Almond Butter Cake which I had shared with you on my blog and that was five years ago. This buttery cake is not dense but soft with walnut fragrance. So perfect to have a slice or two with a hot cup of tea or coffee.
