Walnut Cake With Chocolate

I don't know nothing about this cake.
I just saw it in one of my recipe book and I had all the ingridients except sour cream so i went to the shop close to our home and bought the sour cream.
It is not a difficult cake to make. So i am sure lot of you will try it.

All the ingridients....

Ready to go in the oven

Want to have a slice.....

Ingridients:
125 gm butter
2 tsp vanilla essence
220 gm sugar
3 eggs
30 gm almond powder
40 gm selfraising flour
110 gm all purpose flour ( sieve the flour together)
80 gm Sour cream
100 gm dark chocolate , cut in pieces
100 gm roughly chopped roasted walnuts
powder sugar to sprinkle on the cake

Method:
Heat the oven to 160°c. Butter a long cake form ( 11cm x 25 cm ).
Cream the butter , vanilla and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time. Mix well after adding each egg. Add the almond powder. Now add half of the flour and half of the sour cream.
Now add the rest of the flour and the sour cream together with the walnuts and the chocolate pieces.
Pour the mix into the cake form and bake for 1 hour or till the cake is done.
Place on a wire rack to cool for a while and then remove the cake from the pan.
Before serving the cake sprinkle on top with powder sugar.

Note: Powder sugar is icing sugar

Lissie said...

Happy cook said...

Raaga I just checked a cooking website fir the information u asked. Hope this is correct.

Sour Cream
1 cup plain yogurt can be substituted for 1 cup sour cream.
May be someother bloggers would also have ideas
