Coffee and Walnut Cake

Recipe adapted from Fruity Cakes by Alex Goh: Coffee and Pine Nut Cake

The cake was not bad but coffee flavour was not very strong so the next time probably I will add 1 tsp of coffee paste to enhance it.

250g Butter
180g Sugar
3 Eggs
1 Egg Yolk
150g Pine nuts, toasted (or any nut of your choice)
1 tsp coffee paste (optional)

50g Ground Almonds
230g Plain Flour
1/2tsp Baking Powder

(B) - mix well
60g Milk
1tbsp Instant Coffee

Preheat oven at 180 deg C (For my oven 160 deg C)
1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Add eggs & yolk slowly and cream until smooth and light.
3. Add (A) & (B) gradually and alternately. Mix until well blended.
4. Stir in nuts and mix until well combined.
5. Pour into loaf tin. Sprinkle some chopped nuts on top. Bake for 50 mins.
