Walnut Cake with Chocolate Glaze

Preheat oven to 180 Degree C.

Walnut 1 cup (toasted and finely chopped)

eggs 3

sugar 1/2 cup

flour 1/2 cup

baking powder 1/4 tsp

 

  1. Beat egg with sugar with  electric mixer for 6-8 mins. It will become like mayonnaise.
  2. Sieve in flour & baking powder. combine them.
  3. Fold in 1/4 walnut.
  4. Divide batter into 2 baking pans. And into the oven for 25 mins.
  5. Place cakes on rack to let them cool down.

 

Frosting:

1/4 cup butter (softened), 1 cup icing sugar, 1/2 tbsp milk.

Beat the butter with electric mixer till very light and fluffy. Add in icing sugar 1/3 each a time. Blend well. Add in milk at last. Mix everything well.

Make frosting into 2 part. Add 1/4 walnut into one of them.

Syrup: 1/2 cup warm water, 2 Tbsp sugar, 1 1/2 maple syrup. Mix well.

 

Place one cake upside down. Brush it with syrup. Spread the frosting (with walnut) onto it. Then put the other cake upside down over it. Brush it with syrup too. Spread the other frosting over the top and side of the cake. Sprinkle the rest chopped walnut over the side of the cake.

Chocolate glaze:

3 Tbsp milk, 30g chocolate. Heat in microwave till chocolate melts. Cool down to room temperature.

Pour the chocolate over the top.

Garnish with walnut at last.

The cake is super. It is a bit complicated as I did the frosting and glazing this time, which I never did before. That’s why I think this cake is a bit complicated. And you have a lot of washing to do after that. 🙂

Both my husband and I love the cake. 🙂
