by - 7:00 AM

This is my very first Walnut Crumble cake. It is a recipe which I like very much, from my grandmother-in-law. Actually, I have been having this recipe (on a yellow paper with handwriting of my hubby in Hungarian) since 1.5 years ago. It was noted down when we visited my grandmother-in-law in Gyöngyös Hungary. This is the cake that she made again when we visited her this Winter in January 2017. It was a real success.

The tricky part was that in the first year, we do not have an oven for baking it. That time we were living in a Studio apartment and my daughter was just a little baby. Today, I made these and here is the recipe:
