Ingredients

  • Cake:
  • 4 eggs
  • 7 ounces sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 10.5 ounces white flour
  • 7 ounces milk
  • 4 ounces oil
  • 3 ounces ground walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Glaze:
  • 7 ounces sugar
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 3.5 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 ounces ground walnuts
  • 7 ounces milk
  • (Optionally) 1/2 teaspoon rum

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 390F
  2. Cake: add eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and whisk with a hand mixer for 30 seconds. Add the remaining ingredients, and continue mixing until well blended.
  3. Oil a pan (dimensions 10X14 or similar) and then sprinkle with butter. Pour the cake mass in evenly and place in the oven. Bring the temperature down to 355F and bake for 25 minutes. At this time, bring the temperature down to 320F and bake another 5 minutes or so. Do the toothpick test and take out of the oven if it’s ready.*
  4. Glaze: combine all ingredients into a medium pot and melt together over low and bring to boil. Boil together for 2 to 3 minutes stirring occasionally..
  5. Once the cake is done, pour glaze over it, and leave to cool. Cut into medium squares and serve. Keep in fridge for a couple of days.

Notes

*Toothpick test: to check whether something is baked, prick it with a toothpick in a few places. If the toothpick comes out clean, it’s done. If not, leave in for a little longer, and lower the temperature if needed. You can also use a fork for the test.
