Been a really long time since I last blogged, pardon the absence! Managed to sneak some time amidst all the overtime (work) to blog this simple and delicious cake!
This is a bake that you most likely won't find in cafés - purely because it doesn't look as pretty as those that are frosted or as dainty as those little tarts in display. It is a sad thing because this cake is so delicious and so good with a cup of tea or coffee!
The cake has a light and tender butter cake base - the lightness allowed me to finish a huge slice of this with ease and can still crave for more. Cinnamon sugar and oozy chocolate bits can be found in the middle of the cake - who doesn't like chocolate? To finish it off, toasted, chopped walnuts and cinnamon sugar (again!) are sprinkled on top of the batter before baking. This gives a crunch and extra cinnamon-y goodness in every tender bite of the cake.
A huge thanks to Eileen of One Hundred Eighty Degrees who chose this bake for The Home Bakers! Let's head to the step-by-step photos!
