Scrumptious walnut cake - Läcker valnötstårta

Läcker valnötstårta

A fine cake with chocolate, walnuts and coffee. Serve with fresh berries and whipped cream.

1 cake, 8 to 10 pieces

2 oz baking chocolate in pieces
scant ¼ cup cooking oil
dash salt
good 1/3 cup strong coffee
1 egg
scant ¼ cup whipping cream
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla sugar
1 tsp Swedish sweet arrack punsch
or liqueur of your choice
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped walnuts

Chocolate glazing:
5 oz baking chocolate in pieces
1 tbsp cooking oil

Heat chocolate, oil, salt and coffee over a waterbath until the chocolate has melted. Pour the chocolate mixture in a bowl and add sugar, egg, cream, baking powder, vanilla sugar and punsch or liqueur. Beat with an electric beater until well blended. Add flour and beat for about 3 minutes. Make sure to scrape down the batter that sticks to the walls of the bowl. Stir in half of the nuts.

Pour in a greased, floured baking pan and bake in the lower part of the oven at 175C/gasmark 4 for 35 to 40 minutes or until the cake starts to loosen from the edges of the pan. Allow to cool in the pan, then transfer to a baking paper.

Heat chocolate and oil for the glazing over a waterbath. Spread the glazing over the cake in an even layer. Sprinkle with remaining nuts.
