Two of the most popular baking recipes on Rasa Malaysia are butter cake and brownie butter cake. I am always excited to try new butter cake recipes. I like simple cakes, plain old rich, buttery, sweet cakes that fill the house with the wonderful smell of baking. When I chanced upon this amazing walnut butter cake recipe on Nasi Lemak Lover, I knew I had to make it.
My little boy was browsing the internet with me and saw the pictures of the cake. He pointed to me and said “Mama, can you make this for me?” Of course I would. He loves walnut and this cake is just perfect as his afternoon snack…as a mom, I would make anything that he wanted to eat.
The walnut is first ground and then mixed with the batter and the cake is topped with whole walnuts. The cake is just beautiful. The next day, two loaves of this beautiful, extremely delicious, light, yet buttery walnut butter cake came out from my oven. I gave some to my friend to try and he absolutely loved it.
This walnut butter cake recipe is a keeper. I am sure I will be making it over and over again. Try it out, trust me, you will be very happy if you do.
