Liv Butter - Salted & Unsalted-001
Chinese New Year is just round the corner. I have started my planning for the cny goodies baking over the next two weeks. I thought Saturday was too early for the goodies, so I decided to bake some Walnut Cake for my sisters instead. I realised that most walnut cake included some chocolate chips. For this recipe, I think it will be good to reduce the chocolate chips as I found it too sweet.
