Walnut Coffee Cake with Butter Caramel Sauce

Yesterday was one of my junior's Birthday, T.K. He treated us dinner tonight so I decided to bake him a birthday cake. Kek ni simple je, sebab bahan2 yang pakai mmg basic stuff..nothing too leceh or hard to find. I had some leftover caramel sauce and thought, alang2 ada lagi sikit tu might as well habeskan jer

220g flour
200g white sugar
100g brown sugar
5g Nescafe ( or any instant coffee )
3 tablespoon baking powder
1 pinch of salt
115g shortening ( you can use butter if there's no shortening at home )
230ml milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
4 egg whites
50g crushed walnuts ( any nuts would do if you don't have any walnuts )

How to make:
1. Mix dry ingredients into a bowl, add shortening,milk and vanilla. Beat in mixer for 1 minute or until the mixture is well blended.
2. Add in the egg whites and mix until mixture becomes fluffy or smooth.
3. Bake in prepared pan and preheated oven ( 170-180 degrees) for 30-40 minutes. Halfway through baking, add in crushed walnuts onto the batter and continue baking.This may differ according to your oven temp.Like mine, I had it cooked for 50 minutes at 160 degrees.
4. Leave cake to cool and meanwhile, prepare the butter caramel sauce.

60g sugar
2 tablespoons butter
60ml cream, warmed
vanilla essence

How to make:
1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Stir in the sugar and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally with a heatproof utensil, until the mixture begins to caramelize and turn an amber color.
2. When the caramel has turned somewhat reddish and has begun to smoke, and just when it looks and smells as if it is about to burn, remove from the heat and quickly pour in the heavy cream.
3. Stir the caramel until the sauce is smooth and creamy. Add the vanilla.

Once the cake is cooled and set, sift some icing sugar on top and caramel sauce.

To Mamafami, thanks for trying out my chocolate cake recipe Yup, the amount of cocoa powder used in the recipe is QUITE a lot! and I think the buttermilk makes the cake really rich..but I like this recipe sbb you don't get that weird baking soda after-taste with this cake.

So, sesape rajin nak mencuba recipe Coffee cake ni,silakan and lemme know how your cake turns out,ok!
