My first post !

Hi...and welcome to my blog. Basically it is a collection of recipes tried and tested (found on the net, magazines, recipe books,TV shows, shared by family, friends etc..) ......the keepers :). I hope that I will learn the "art" of blogging gradually.

The sour cream tea cake is a moist cake, tastes good with or without the tea ......I normally tend to use less sugar so it is not very very sweet .The recipe calls for sprinkling the walnuts between layers, but i think mixing them in the batter would be much better.

Sour Cream Tea Cake


2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
1 ½ cups sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 C walnuts finely chopped (or roughly powdered)

Whisk together:

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Whisk in another bowl:

1 cup sour cream
½ teaspoon baking soda


Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Butter and flour a 9-inch nonstick pan.

Beat butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes(I used electric mixer). With mixer on low speed, add 1/3rd of the flour mixture , let mix , then add half of the sour cream mixture , let mix , again 1/3rd of flour , let mix , add remaining sour cream , let mix , finally add the remaining flour mixture. Mix just until moistened.

Spread half of the batter in pan; sprinkle with walnuts. Spread remaining half of the batter over the walnuts.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs, 60 to 70 minutes.

Cool in pan 30 minutes before turning the cake out on a rack. Cool .

Enjoy with tea or coffee !

Rahin, congrats on your spanking new blog! I've never baked with sour cream and anything with walnuts is a sure winner as far as I am concerned. Once I try this, I will let you know how we liked it!
