Cinnamon Walnuts Streusel Cake

Cinnamon Walnuts Streusel Cake

 I first saw this recipe from My Kitchen Snippets I love it right the way! She made it so beautiful and looked yummy to me! Then I decided to make a small version one for our breakfast and as a snack for my son in his school. I had made little changes to the recipe that I had cut down a lot of butter and sugar portion ( I like less sweet cake :) and replaced the yogurt with the fresh cream due to it expires soon..... No waste mah...


125g of butter
½ cup of sugar
1 ¼ cup of flour
1 tsp of baking powder
¼ tsp salt
½ cup fresh cream (original was yogurt)

3 eggs
½ tsp of vanilla


2 tbsp of brown sugar
½ cup of chopped walnuts
1 tbsp of butter
¼ cup of flour
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp of cinnamon powder

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Butter a loaf pan. Mix all the streusel ingredients together and set it aside.
2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into medium bowl and set it aside. Using electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy and creamy.
3. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Until well combined. Mix in vanilla. Mix dry ingredients and fresh cream alternately into butter mixture in 3 additions. Mix well.
4. Pour 1/2 of batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with half of streusel mixture. Pour the balance batter on top of the streusel. Sprinkle the balance of the streusel on top of the cake.
5. Bake the cake 45-50 mins until golden brown or tester inserted at the center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan. To remove the cake from pan.

Banana, Cranberry & Apple Loaf Cake

I had a green apple left in my fridge and didn't know what can do with it since nobody likes to bite it away. Also a small box of cranberries was left at corner in my kitchen since CNY (not yet expired though)! I saw this recipe from My Kitchen Snippets and decided to have a try (since she claimed it was very simple and it turns out it is true indeed)! On my way home from work, I rushed to the fruits stall near my house and asked for ripe bananas that I could make the cake right away! I got them!



1 ½ cups flour
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
½ cup + 2 tbsp vegetable oil
4 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup dried cranberry
