Ingredients Nougat:
200 gr Sugar (I used 180 gr, but can reduced to 150 gr)**
200 gr Nuts, toasted, coarsely chopped ^^

Cake A: 
8 no Egg yolks 
50 gr Caster sugar 
100 gr Fresh milk
100 gr Oil 

150 gr Cake flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder 

Cake B:
250 gr (I used 8 no Egg whites)
100 gr Caster Sugar 
1/2 sdt Cream of tar-tar 
1/2 sdt Salt (I omitted)

Your favourite Buttercream : 250 gr + 1 Tbsp mocca paste

Method : 
- Prepare Nougat in advance : Heat the sugar using medium fire, let it turn brownish or caramel, then pour in chopped nuts. Turn off fire and keep stirring until well incorporated, pour in to the baking paper and let it thinly laid on top of the big tray. Let it cool and grind it to nougat.
- Cake :
- Preheat oven to 170C
- Lightly whisk egg yolk with sugar.
- Add in corn oil, milk and vanilla, stir to combine.
- Add in cake flour, mix well, set aside.
- Beat egg white & cream of tartar until foamy, then gradually add in sugar, beat till stiff peaks.
- Take 1/3 portion of egg white mixture and use hand whisk to mix with egg yolk mixture till light. Fold the balance of egg white mixture into egg yolk mixture, combine well.
- Pour batter into 4pcs 6 inch pan, bake for 15-20 mins or until cook

Assembly :
- Design your cakes layered with mocca buttercream and nougat.

Notes :
** You may replaced sugar by substitute half of sugar to honey
^^ I am using fine nuts, in result my nougat very fine.
- You may bake the recipe in half and yield 3 layers 6 inch cake

    1. Hallo Ikasari, thank you, ini kelihatannya susah, tapi sebenarnya tidak, cuman sedikit repot di bagian nougatsnya saje. Tapiiii .... sekali buat, ketageh, kagak bisa henti makannya hehehehee .... Kalo resep versi Indo, bisa dilihat di IGnya @imeliciouz1085 atau @elsaelwin.

  3. I love a cake which stands tall and proud. Your mocha nougat cake certainly achieves that. Look so lovely with all the crunchy praline on the cake. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much Veronica :) Actually I just don't know how to decorate it, just stick all my nougats on the cake hahahahhaa, and the recipe is quite huge, so instead I baked into one BIG cake, I option for one TALL cake. But if you got chance, I recommend this one, the nougats too delicious to hard to resist .... if you scared too sweet, substitute half of the sugar to honey, that what my baking fellow did. :)

  4. The texture looks perfect.. im going to try soon

    1. Thank you Yola, this cake taste so nice, you may put some of the nougats in between the layers too. Appreciate if you can give me the feedback. Happy baking :)

  5. Hi your cake is beautiful. Did you use mocha paste for the sponge cake? And can you share your mocca buttercream recipe? Thanks

    1. Hi Amanda,

      The sponge cake I made this without mocha paste. You may get the buttercream recipe from the right side under butter cream category with 1 tsp mocha paste.
