Realised I've been posting lots of savoury food these days, so let's take a break and head over to desserts first! This is another overdue The Home Bakers bake (sorry for the delay!), chosen by Mich from Piece of Cake.
This bake is very similar to other THB bakes, whereby a streusel topping is topped on a simple butter cake base. I usually substitute nuts for almond in most of my THB bakes as almond is a lot cheaper here. Not wanting to make the cake taste the same as other THB cakes, I decided to give it a booze! I omitted the baking soda and substituted the buttermilk with Baileys.
|1) Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter.||2) Mix them together.|
|3) Then stir in the almonds. Set aside.||4) Measure butter and sugars in a mixing bowl.|
|5) Beat until creamy!||6) Beat in 1 egg...|
|7) Followed by the 2nd egg.||8) Sift and fold in ⅓ of the flour mixture.|
|9) Stir in half of the Baileys.||10) Sift and fold in another ⅓.|
|11) Pour in the remaining Baileys.||12) And mix in the rest of the flour mixture.|
|13) Spread ½ the batter in a tin and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Pour in remaining batter.||14) Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the batter and bake away!|

Update 29/12/2016: Thanks to a reader, Jeny, I noticed that the recipe I posted is not inline with the step-by-step photos - as this post was blogged quite some time back, I cannot remember the details of the cake, so I'm taking down the recipe and will only reupload it when I have tested it again. I'm so terribly sorry for any inconvenience caused! Meanwhile, for the original recipe, please head over to Mich's blog!
