This simple Nutty Chocolate Cake is so simple and yummy!!! You can use any nuts you like, and really no special ingredients are needed, simple pantry items are used. I hope you will try it, it does come out somewhat like a brownie, but it is YUMMY!!
1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 ounces (2 squares) unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup nuts, coarsely chopped (walnuts, pecans, almonds or hazelnuts)
Preheat oven 350 degrees
Spray a 9 inch round cake pan, I use a tart pan and lined it with parchment paper.
Mix together flour, salt and baking powder, set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl beat eggs and sugar until light and fluffy,
bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 26 – 30 minutes. Let cake cool completely
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chips or chopped
1/2 cup whipping cream
and spread all over, you can use decorative chocolate curls or more chopped nuts as a garnish.
Chill for 15 minutes before serving.
Add a dollop up fresh whipped cream when served if you like…Enjoy!!!!
