Coffee Butter Cake with Almond & Cranberry Toppings

This is my favourite Classic Butter Cake recipe from Sonia. When Fion approached me to this bake along theme, I agreed without hesitating. This time I added some coffee mixture to the batter and added Silverd Almonds & Cranberries as toppings. Am happy with the end result.

4. Take one portion of the egg white mixture, and use a hand whisk to stir well with egg yolk mixture till combine and thick paste.
5. Slowly fold in the balance egg white with a spatula till well combine.
6. Spoon the batter in a cake pan which line the base with paper and lightly grease.
7. Sprinkle Silvered Almonds and Cranberries.
