Time really passes by so quickly that it's due for another cake again at The Home Bakers ( THB ), an event organised by Joyce. I just realised that this cake is due to post today and it's my turn to provide the recipe this time, therefore i quickly made this 3 days ago. Well actually, we can post anytime 30days from today but due to the reason that i'm giving out the recipe, i will have to post it up today otherwise i'll get spanked by Joyce. This is the 6th cake so far that we are baking from the book, Coffee Cakes by Lou Seibert Pappas. I'm very pleased with the outcome of the cake, though nothing really fancy, it's a coffee flavoured cake with some chocolate marbles within the cake, the texture is soft and light, it isnt dry, nice coffee flavour and love it. You are welcomed to take a look at the same cake made by other members of the group here
I have made half the recipe in a 7 inch round tin and kindly note that i'm providing the full recipe and also half recipe here, the halved recipe is in blue.

In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, stir to blend. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream in 2 increments, beating until thick and smooth.

At the same time, i would like to inform there is an upcoming event to be launched this coming August 2012, Malaysian Food Fest organised by Wendy from Table for 2..or more. It is an online event whereby its main objectives are to introduce the specialty food from each state in Malaysia and to encourage everyone to cook those at home.

We encourage everyone, bloggers and non bloggers , Malaysians or non Malaysians to take part in this meaningful event , cook and submit your entries to the respective hosts for the month.
