200 gms (7 oz.) fresh cream
3 tbsp powdered sugar
50 gms grated chocolate
1 tsp butter

For the cake

  1. Add the essence to the cake mixture. Pour into a well-greased and dusted 200 mm. (8") diameter tin and bake in a hot oven at 200 degree C (400 degree F) for 15 minutes. The cake is ready when it leaves the sides of the tin and is springy to touch.

  3. Melt the chocolate with the butter and 1 teaspoon of water on a slow flame. Trickle this melted chocolate all over the cake.
  4. Sprinkle walnuts on top.
  5. Cut into slices and serve cold.
