Walnut - Honey Pound Cake

I think that walnuts and honey are the perfect couple! So why not to put them all together into a punt cake? I just loved this recipe. All that delicious honey sirup which the cake has drunk makes it incredibly moist and flavorful…. It is great to accompany with tea or coffee or already enjoying it for breakfast! Give it a try and I promise you will not regret!! 

  • 200g soft butter
  • 200g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 50g full natural yogurt
  • 1 package vanilla sugar (16g)
  • 6 spoons honey
  • 60g hopped walnuts

Preheat your oven to 175ÂșC and prepare a teacake mould 8cm x 27cm. 
Beat eggs and sugars together either in the food processor or in a bowl with a whisk, until pale. Add butter, yogurt, flour, salt and baking powder and whisk until combined. Now add 4 spoons of honey and again combine all together. Add walnuts and again whisk until they combine with your cake mixture. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake in the preheated oven for around 50-60 minutes. You can check to see that it's ready by sticking a cocktail stick into the centre of the cake. It should come out clean and not sticky, if it is still sticky just leave it in the oven for 5-10 minutes more.
When the cake is still in the oven prepare the honey sirup: pour 50ml water into a pot add 2 spoons of honey and on a low heat cook until the water evaporates and the liquid reduces by half. Now if your cake is ready take it out of the oven and immediately sprinkle the hot cake with your honey syrup. Sprinkling it when still hot makes your cake will drink all the honey syrup, and that is the secret to keep the cake moist and juicy :)
