Cinnamon Nut Crumble Cake

I love a crumble on a cake, it gives a lovely crunch to the soft spongy cake. Here I have used cashewnuts, which is ground to a powder and mixed into the cake batter , the cinnamon gives it that lovely aroma and flavour .

For the crumble I have used fine brown sugar which is mixed with finely chopped cashewnuts and some amount of cinnamon powder added , which is then sprinkled all over the cake batter.

This cake takes approximately 45 mins to bake. If using an OTG , Use the lower burner and not the top as this may burn the crumble.

Ingredients 250 gms maida/ plain flour 250 gms soft unsalted butter 250 gms caster sugar or powder sugar 4 eggs 60 gms cashewnuts 1 and 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp soda bicarbonate

Method Melt the butter and keep aside. Sift the maida, cinnamon powder, baking powder and soda bicarbonate together and keep aside. Grind the 60 gms cashewnuts ( powder the cashewnuts), keep aside. In a bowl break four eggs, whisk the eggs using a hand whisk. Then add the caster sugar or powder sugar and whisk again well. Next mix in the sifted flour mixture and start whisking. Add the ground cashewnuts and mix well. Now add the melted butter and whisk gently till well incorporated.

Line a parchment paper into a baking dish ( 8 inch diameter) Pour the cake batter into the baking dish.

Ingredients 2 For the crumble 50 gms finely chopped cashewnuts 1/4 cup fine brown sugar 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder Mix the above ingredients well

Method Sprinkle well this crumble mix all over the cake batter.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 45 mins or till done.
