This is the 11th bake from The Home Bakers, an event organized by Joyce of Kitchen Flavours and the recipe was picked by Kit from I-Lost in Austen. Do drop by Kit’s wonderful blog for the full recipe, at the same time indulge in other awesome recipes she shared.
I made some modifications to the recipe :
- replaced macadamia nuts with hazelnuts
- replaced sour cream with yogurt
- omitted sweetened flaked coconuts
- added chocolate chips
What I like the most is the delicious scent of cinnamon sugar when the cake was freshly baked and the crunchy texture from the hazelnuts. The cake to my liking has a texture of huat kueh (发糕) which is a little dense and moist.
