Ingredients For Filling:

  • Walnuts, chopped 1 cup
  • Brown sugar ¾ cup
  • Cinnamon 2 tsp
  • Sea salt a pinch
  • Butter, melted 2 oz

For The Cake:

  • Flour 3 cups
  • Baking powder 1 tbsp
  • Baking soda 1 tsp
  • Sea salt ¼ tsp
  • Sugar 1 cup
  • Eggs 2
  • Butter, melted 4 oz
  • Milk 1 ½ cup
  • Yogurt ½ cup
  • Vanilla essence 1 tsp
  • Extra sugar and butter for pan
  • Honey ½ cup

Mix the filling ingredients until well combined. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt. Beat sugar, eggs & melted butter until smooth. Add milk, yogurt and vanilla essence. Mix in the flour mixture until combined well. Butter the cake tin and line it with sugar and tap all excess is out. Gently place 1/2 the cake batter in the bottom of your pan. Be sure it is evenly distributed and smooth it. Gently place the filling you made over it without touching the sides of the pan as this can cause it to stick to the pan once it is done baking. Then top it with the remaining the cake batter, be sure it is even and smooth. Bake at 180 degrees C for 45 minutes (rotating it half way), or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the cake cool before serving, drizzle with honey and serve.
