My Favourite Chocolate & Walnut Cake Recipe |Baking

2 weeks ago, i posted a picture of this cake on my Instagram (you can follow me here) and captioned it asking if anyone would like to see the recipe as its one of my favourite cakes ever! You guys seemed to love it so here it is! Please let me know if you end up trying it out, i would love to see the outcome!

The recipe is shown as below…

  • 3 eggs
  • 330g self raising flour
  • 235ml milk
  • 330g granulated sugar
  • 330g butter
  • A sachet of baking powder
  • 3 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tbsp Rowntrees Cocao Powder
  • A handful of crushed walnuts, however this can be changed according to your preference.

For decorating,

  • 150g Dark Cooking Chocolate
  • 150g Milk Cooking Chocolate
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • A handful of Crushed Walnuts
  • Any other toppings of your choice!
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Put the butter and sugar into a bowl and use a wooden spoon to cream the two together until fluffy.
  3. Split half the mixture into another bowl so you can get the chocolate vanilla effect, and add the cocoa powder and vanilla into each of them. If you want the cake mixture to be all chocolate or all vanilla then add the cocoa powder/ vanilla extract into the same mixture.
  4. Gradually beat the eggs into the mixture along with the flour, walnuts and baking powder.
  5. Add the milk until the mixture is drippy and stir all together. If by this point you have two separate mixtures, put them into a tin one spoonful at a time to give it the mixed effect.
  6. Place the cake tin into the oven and wait for it to cook between 40-45 minutes but DO NOT open the oven door whilst the cake is cooking!
  7. Once the cake has cooked, put it aside so it can cool down.
  8. Whilst the cake is cooling down, heat the chocolate and butter together until it is runny and spread it all over the cake.
  9. The decoration is now all up to you so you can add any toppings of your choice such as Marshmallows, Sprinkles and many more! However in this case i had put another handful of walnuts on top.

Hope you have all enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments if you’re willing to try it out!
