Walnut Butterscotch Loaf Cake

First time I made this cake last year and packed it for our trip and we loved it. So made it again weeks back to pack it for my best friends family. The cake is so soft and the eggy flavour is not much dominated here, doesnt that sound interesting?!

Walnut Butterscotch Loaf Cake Recipe - Ingredients
Recipe Source : Kaipunyam

  • Maida - 1 cup (135 gms)
  • Granulated Sugar - 3/4 cup (165 gms)
  • Butter - 2 tbsp
  • Baking powder - 1 tsp
  • Hot milk - 1/2 cup (125 ml)
  • Eggs - 2
  • Chopped walnuts - 1/4 cup
  • Butterscotch chips - 1/4 cup
  • Vanilla essence 1 tsp
  • Honey - 1 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
NOTE : If you dont have butterscotch chips, then skip it and proceed with just walnuts. But add 1 cup of sugar, I added only 3/4 cup because I added butterscotch chips.

4. Finally fold in walnuts and butterscotch.Preheat oven at 180 deg C for 10mins. Meanwhile grease the pan with oil and little flour , tap off excess flour then add the prepared batter till 3/4th (or even 1/2 is ok) of the pan.Garnish with walnuts and butterscotch(mix butterscotch with a tsp of maida and then add to avoid sinking to the bottom)on top and bake it for 35- 40mins or until the top turns golden brown.

Cool down for atleast 30mins - 1 hour then cut into slices and enjoy. Best as a tea time cake.

Walnut Butterscotch Loaf Cake RecipeMy Notes:
  • I had some leftover butterscotch chips so wanted to use it. You can skip it if you dont have and proceed with just walnuts or I highly recommend adding caramel(1/8 cup)
  • Mix butterscotch chip with a tsp of maida and then add to avoid sinking to the bottom.
  • You can use this recipe for a basic sponge cake, the taste and texture is too good.
  • This time I didnt lay a butter paper just greased it with little oil and flour. The cake came out clean.

I liked the butterscotch flavour the best here. I've tried the same cake with just walnuts and the taste was just too good that made me to make this cake again.

  49. Hey Sharmi,

    I enjoy visiting ur blog. U've named it quite aptly. I live in Cincinnati,OH. I'm from CBE too. I was wondering if u r familiar with KRS bakes apple cake. It is round,kind of brown colored & has green yellow icing on top. I've been trying to hunt a recipe for it but to no avail. If u happen to know it could u please share it here. Would love to hear from u. U r an inspiration to us lesser mortals.
    Hugs,
    Sharmi.
