Hi Aunty

Do you conduct any baking classes??

Thanks Aunty :)

Yuri said...

hi aunty, how do you get the walnuts to be all over? the last time i baked walnut cake, they all were at the bottom. I followed your Rich Walnut Cake recipe.

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Yuri,

I also don't know but for this coffee walnut cake, it's quite a watery batter and yet the walnuts stays put.

As for the rich walnut cake, please do not stir too much. You can add in more walnuts so that it has walnuts all over the place.

Hi Aunty,
You mentioned you added wheat germ but its not reflected in the recipe.


Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Kat,

I omitted the wheat germ cos I don't like it. You can add 20 gm. wheat germ into the batter.

hi aunty

you've got a collection of really good recipes. i wanted to try out this coffee walnut cake recipe. I couldnt understand what cornoil is. Also how do we prepare the coffee paste that you've mentioned.


Aunty Yochana said...

hi chehak.

cornoil is also used for cooking.

coffee paste is store bought and if you don't have it, just omit it and increase your nescafe to double.


Esther said...

Hi Aunty,

Can i use "canola & sunflower cooking oil"(naturel brand) instead of cornoil?


Esther said...

Hi Aunty,

Can i use butter instead of cooking oil? If yes, may i know the quantity of butter?

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Esther

yes you can sub with melted butter instead of cooking oil.
