Walnut Loaf Cake
If you are a fan of not so sweet treats to go with your beloved coffee, this Walnut Loaf Cake is right down your alley. It’s tasty, moist and crunchy at the same time. You’ll love it.
As you already know, I’m not really a fan of sweets, but I do prefer some treats from time to time, and this cake it’s perfect for my taste. It’s not too sweet and it goes perfectly with tea or coffee (while reading a book 😉 ).
This recipe was given to me by a friend to try it and post it for you guys if you want to give it a try. And I really encourage you to do that because you’ll not regret making this loaf cake.
The ingredients are quite simple and just a few. Maybe you already have all of them in the house.
- 5 medium eggs
- 125 g of plain yogurt
- 80 ml of sunflower seed oil
- 100 g of brown sugar
- a pinch of salt
- 280 g of white flour or whole wheat (I used whole wheat)
- 1 sachet of baking powder (2 teaspoons)
- butter or oil to grease the loaf pan
- 1 big handful of walnuts, chopped
As you can see, there are just a few ingredients to make this delicious Walnut Loaf Cake. So, let’s get to work. In less than 15 minutes, the loaf pan will be in the oven.
Prepare 2 bowls. Crack the eggs. In one of the bowls add the yolks, in the other the whites. Add a pinch of salt where the whites are and start beating them until soft peaks appear. At this stage, add the sugar in two stages. Mix again.
Add the yolk and mix again. Now, add the yogurt and the oil. Mix mix mix.
Lastly, we add the flour mixed with the baking powder. Pour it slowly into the bowl and mixing at the same time on low speed.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 190*C.
Grease the loaf pan with one teaspoon of oil or butter and spread it evenly on the bottom and sides.
Pour in the batter and sprinkle the walnuts on top of the cake. Be generous with the walnuts because they’ll add a nice crunch to the cake. You can also sprinkle some brown sugar on top along with the walnuts.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, until golden on top and till a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Let the cake rest for a few minutes into the pan before taking it out. Serve it with a good cup of tea or coffee.
