Chocolate Walnut Cake

This is another recipe given free when I bought my first oven and so fast all the recipes that I have tried out are really good.

This is another very good one. I give my friend a whole cake (see below) and her family like it very much. Her daughter even brought some to school to share with her friends! :P

I used the rest of the batter to bake in cups instead.

  • 350g Butter, soften
  • 120g Caster Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanillin Powder

  • 10 Egg Yolks

  • 240g Plain Flour, sifted
  • 2 teaspoon Baking Powder

  • 120g Chocolate Rice
  • 200g Coarsely Chopped Walnuts

  • 10 Egg Whites
  • 120g Caster Sugar

  • 80g Halfed/Quartered Walnuts as toppings

How to do it:
  1. Prepare greased 9" cake tin (I used rectangle foil tin).
  2. Preheat oven at 180C.
  3. Beat (A) till light and creamy.
  4. Add in (B) slowly.
  5. Gradually add in (C) and mix evenly.
  6. Fold in (D).
  7. In another bowl, whisk (E) at high speed till peaks.
  8. Fold in to first bowl to form a smooth batter.
  9. Pour into cake tin and top with (F).
  10. Bake for 45 minutes or till done. Check using toothpick test.
  11. Remove from mould immediately.

  1. Looks delicious! I must try that at home. Where did you get those cute muffin cups?

  2. Food and wine tour chica,
    Thank you. Hope you will like it.
    I bought those muffin cups from a local baking store in Singapore call Phoon Huat.

  3. I tried it yesterday! Had some problems with the beating of the egg whites (as usual) but it turned out quite well. =) Gave it a little twist by adding 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract for extra layers of flavor - add the spices especially if you like carrot cakes.

    Thank you for sharing the recipe!
