Chocolate walnut cake

Chocolate walnut cake

One-bowl or mix-in-the-pan type of cake – all the ingredients are just mixed together, right in the cake pan. (I find it much easier to mix the ingredients together in a separate bowl). Old-fashioned cake recipes have a special beauty. This cake has a soft and fluffy texture with rich chocolate flavor while a  walnuts adds a crunchy surprise, that almost doesn’t need frosting. If you like you can just dust the top of the cake with a little powdered sugar or cocoa powder and serve it on its own. Here is used whip cream frosting and melted chocolate, very lightly.

1 cup (150g) flour, sifted
1/3 cup (50g) cocoa, sifted
1 cup (220g) caster sugar
1/3 cup (80g) butter, softened
1/2 cup (125ml) milk
2 eggs
2 tbsp chopped walnuts
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix on high for 5 minutes.
Pour into an oiled cake tin.
Bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 35 minutes.

Simple chocolate walnut cake for those chilly Fall afternoons with a warm cup of chocolate?  You may also make different versions of this cake with other kinds of nuts, or favorite fruits by season. But for now, I hope you enjoy this rich flavor cake and that you have a wonderful weekend!  🙂

    Interested in trying this. Almost identical to my recipe except I use self-rising flour and brown sugar. Yum!
