Ingredients

How to make it

  • Line & grease & dust the bottom of a 9” spring form baking tin. Grease and dust the sides.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  • Prepare the streusel by mixing the 1 tbsp of flour + brown sugar + toasted walnuts in a bowl. Divide into 2; mix big chocolate chips in one, and the mini chips in the other. (Use only 1 size/variety of chips if you like.)
  • Stir together the flour + baking powder + baking soda in a bowl.
  • Mix the yogurt + cream + lime juice in a small bowl. (You can use sour cream instead)
  • Beat the butter + sugar until light.
  • Beat in the eggs one by one, and then the vanilla essence + orange zest.
  • Beat in the 1/3 of the flour mixture; then 1/3 of the yogurt/cream mixture. Repeat twice & beat until just mixed in properly.
  • Put half the batter in the tin; level out. Sprinkle the half streusel mix with the regular Ghirardelli chips evenly over this.
  • Top with the remaining batter; then sprinkle the other half of the streusel mix evenly.
  • Bake for approximately 60 minutes/ till done.
  • Leave to cool in tin on rack for 10 minutes, and then remove the sides.
  • I took the bottom lining parchment off about an hour later; peeled it off carefully as I couldn't invert the cake, else the topping may have fallen off.
  • Serve warm as it is…OR with whipped cream or a dollop of vanilla ice-cream!

    I made this cake for my family the other night and of course... its already gone. Definitely making it again. Think maybe a little less sugar on the top though next time.... :P

    And for the parson questioning about the butter...
    I put half a block in and it was fine.

    Cheers

    I agree. :0)...Love your new festive avatar.
    For the cake, you can skip the orange zest & use cinnamon in the streusel instead. I just enjoy adding twists to the tale!
