Almond Coffee Cake


I was wondering what to do with the bottle of Kahlua coffee liqueur when Ann of Anncoo Journal posted her Almond coffee cakes.  Making this is a breeze and mixing can be done in a jiffy.  I totally agree with her that these lovely mini bundt cakes are truly very delicious and the sweet aroma of the Kahlua is just overwhelming.

  6. These little devils sounded incredible. And the mould looks beautiful as well. I just bought a few silicon moulds a few days back at a nearby shop with less than RM50 and a few more from Daiso KL. Great great bargain! Yes, it's my late birthday presents that I'm buying myself. haha....
    Hope you're enjoying your weekend, Cheah.

This is an easy peasy recipe where no mixer is required.  Method is more or less like making muffins.  The texture of this banana loaf is soft, moist and there is a perfect blend between the aromatic bananas and chocolate chips.

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
