Almond Coffee Pound Cake
Recipe source:  Ann of Anncoo Journal

Ingredients:
     150g Butter
     120g Brown Sugar
     1/2 tsp Salt
     3 Eggs (60g), lightly beaten
     1/2 tbsp Instant coffee powder (I used Indocafe)
     1 tbsp Kahlua/rum
     170g Plain flour + 1 tsp Baking powder,   sifted
     2 tbsp Ground almond
     1 tbsp Fresh milk
     Amond flakes for topping

     Method:
Line one 8 x 4 1/2 inches cake pan all sides up and set aside.
Cream butter, sugar and salt at medium speed until light and fluffy.
Gradually add beaten eggs little by little until combined and add coffee powder and kahlua it and mix well.
Sift the plain flour and baking powder the second time directly to the batter with ground almond and gently fold well with a rubber spatula. Then add 1 tbsp fresh milk into it and fold the batter to smooth.
Pour batter into prepared cake pan and sprinkle almond flakes on top
Bake at preheated oven at 190C for 10 minutes. Then reduce temperature to 170C and bake for another 25 - 30 minutes or skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Leave cake to cool in cake pan for 10 minutes and remove cake, then place on to rack to cool completely.

I hope you will ENJOY this as much as i do..:)

  14. I tried to bake pound cake before trying to bake sponge cake, it is not so easily go wrong compare to sponge cake.
    Your pound cake looks moist and dense, I am currently breastfeeding my baby, so coffee is not an option to me for this short while, will try it when I am 'free'again, I love coffee cakes

    1. Stephanie,
      Your are a great mum. I always thought breast feeding mummies are awesome and made a great investment in their child 's health.

      This cake is full of coffee aroma.
      Yes, do try this when you are 'free'.
