Walnut Sponge Cake


I love cake. But is there something better than a non expected cake? Don’t think so. The other day my brother’s girlfriend came around with this walnut sponge cake goodness and I couldn’t help but ask for the recipe just after the first bite –I had to test it just in case it was poisonous. If you are fancying something sweet, see below the how to recipe..

You will need:

250g butter, 250g sugar, 4 eggs, 350g flour, 2tbs baking powder, 200g nuts

Pre heat the oven at 180 degrees. Start working the butter until it’s soft and then add the sugar. Keep mixing. Sift in 3 eggs and continue mixing without stopping. When everything is blended and smooth, add the fourth egg. Combine the flour with the baking powder and add it to the mixture. Pour in the nuts. Put the mixture into a baking case and bake for 1h 15 or 1h 30 at 180 degrees. Of course, if you’re feeling adventurous (or don’t like walnuts) you can add any other nut. I think I can safely say that even with my rather average baking skills I would be able to recreate this cake –or something like it..
