Simple Recipe – Coffee Walnut Cake

Nothing beat a good slice of home baked cake.

Somehow walnut is a staple nut in the baking pantry and it’s important to get good walnuts so I dun mind paying a bit more, like those from US.

My 2 mini loaf tin which is just nice for this recipe. The smaller one measure 4.5cm (width) x 17.5cm (length).

I like how *almost* straight the edges are.
