A minimalist cake with a delicious autumn inspired filling, this cake is a must bake. Two layers of light fluffy cake are separated by a smooth filling that has a slight crunch due to the chopped walnuts. Make your own pumpkin jam for the filling or purchase it at your favorite market or store. If you are not a fan of pumpkin, you can substitute your favorite jam or curd instead.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 200 grams margarine (softened)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup tea (milk)
  • 1 jar jam (homemade pumpkin, or jam of choice)
  • 1 cup walnuts (coarsely chopped)
  • powdered sugar (for sprinkling)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Grease a round cake pan with margarine and flour. Set aside.
  3. Mix the flour with the baking powder.
  4. Beat the margarine with the sugar until it becomes a soft cream.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time to the sugar mixture, and beat well between each addition.
  6. Alternating, add the flour and the milk.
  7. Bake for about 50 minutes. Do the toothpick test, remove from oven, wait about 10 minutes, and remove from the mold.
  8. Let cool, and with the appropriate utensil for cutting cakes, or with a wet serrated knife, cut the cake in half horizontally.
  9. Remove the top, and cover the bottom with the pumpkin jam (or any other flavor).
  10. Spread the nuts over the jam. Cover the cake again with the top, pressing lightly to glue the filling, but be careful not to crack the cake.
  11. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Great recipe. I think it’s the perfect go-to dessert during autumn, but it’s delicious so I see myself making this several times throughout the year. Yum!
