Walnut Cocoa Butter Cake

Yum

Chinese New Year is coming and everyone is baking up a storm. I didn’t want to feel left out; So I made this simple cocoa butter cake using my Marbled Butter Cake recipe, and added walnut to the mix. I divided the batter and baked it in 2 x 6 inch cake pans to share the calories with my BFF. My girls loved the cake as much as my BFF’s daughter, finishing every single crumb they can find in their plate.

I love this technique of making butter cake as it requires less effort as compared to the famous Mrs SK Ng’s egg separation butter cake. It still yields a light and fluffy cake without the need to separate the eggs and whisking the egg whites into meringue. The result was not as light as the egg separation method, but definitely lighter than the usual dense butter cake. Beating the eggs a little longer introduce aerates the batter making the cake lighter and fluffier. Both methods are equally delish though. You can also skip the walnuts and make this a cocoa butter cake instead.
