110g (4 oz) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
125g (4.5 oz or slightly more than 1 stick) salted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
80g (3 oz) fine sugar

Grease the baking pan with butter. Sift the flour and baking powder, set aside

Cream butter, vanilla extract and sugar till fluffy and pale (take about 4 mins using electric hand mixer at speed 2). Add in the eggs one at a time, cream well until well combined before adding another one.

Fold the flour, ground walnut and milk, and mix to combine well. Transfer the batter into the greased pan, shake gently to level off the batter. Sprinkle the whole walnuts on top.

Bake at a pre-heated oven at 180C (350F) for about 30-35 mins or until a cake tester inserted into the walnut butter cake comes out clean.

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.

  2. Really afraid to try…measurements don’t sound right. 4 oz flour is only 1/2 cup…besides the rest of the ingredients still doesn’t add up to one regular size loaf??? Will have to check out some other recipes for same cake.

    Hi Bee, tried this amazingly easy recipe for the first time but i found that the cake crumbled very easily when i tried to remove it from the pan. Did you let the cake set in the pan for a bit after removing from the oven before taking it out of the pan?

    I made this recipe this morning. The first batch, the walnuts sunk in before they finished baking. The second batch, I put them on top about 15 mins into the baking. They stayed on top.

    I bake this cake for my son birthday. It taste great. Love it, will definitely make them again. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

      • My husband requested me to bake this cake for his birthday. The measurement is right on, I double the batch and bake them in two 9″ round pan. I use buttercream frosting to complete the look and sandwich between the two layers. It came out lovely! I decided to order another sheet of cake from a very famous local bakery just so everyone has enough to eat. They didn’t know one of the cakes are homemade but the guests commented how good the butter walnut cake, better than the chocolate cake!

    What are the measurements of the mini loaf pans used for this recipe? I am in Canada and mini pans come in many sizes.
