Coffee Walnut Cake recipe

It felt so good baking a cake almost after a gap of two months. Yes, we have restricted cakes and other desserts only for special occasions and festivals. It was our wedding anniversary yesterday. As few cakes are baked at home nowadays, I had so many of them in my mind and was wondering which one to make. But I was craving for the coffee flavoured one for a very long time. So It was decided to bake a coffee cake. And about the walnuts, I just love to bite into them. So I added a handful of them in the cake. It was a lovely surprise for my hubby. The cake was a huge success and of course the coffee flavour did satisfy my taste buds.

My son was so excited to see the cake and sang the happy birthday song and it was he who cut the cake too!!! This is the picture after we cut the cake and I was too lazy to take a neat picture.
