banana walnut and chocolate cake recipe

The cake I dedicate to you today was originally meant to be "Amandina Cake" , but in the end (as you already know it's my style :))) I changed my mind and changed along the way.

Ingredients:

  • Wheat:
  • 8 eggs
  • 200 g sugar
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 8 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa
  • 100 g ground walnuts
  • 1 baking powder
  • esenta de rom
  • Cream:
  • 400 g butter
  • 120 g dark chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa
  • 200 g sugar
  • 100 g ground walnuts
  • esenta de rom
  • Syrup:
  • 150 ml water
  • 100 g sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • Glaze:
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 50 g butter
  • 50 ml liquid cream

Preparation Walnut and chocolate cake:

Wheat:

Separate the egg whites from the yolks and beat hard with the sugar and a pinch of salt, like meringue. Mix the yolks with the oil and essence. Pour everything over the beaten egg whites, then add the flour mixed with baking powder, cocoa and ground walnuts. Mix well by mixing lightly.

The composition is poured into a tray (24 cm in diameter) lined with baking paper and put in the oven over medium heat for about 25-30 minutes. The toothpick test is done. Remove to a grill, leave to cool then cut into 4.

Cream:

The butter melts partially, leaving unmelted pieces. Then mix until cool and bind again, obtaining a fine and fluffy cream. Add the sugar and continue mixing until it melts.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave with 2 tablespoons of milk. Homogenize, let cool, then gradually incorporate into the butter cream. Add cocoa, ground walnuts and rum essence.

Syrup:

Boil the water for a few minutes with the sugar. Leave to cool, then add the brandy.

Glaze:

Melt the broken chocolate together with the butter and liquid cream. When it has reached boiling point, set it aside and mix well. Leave to cool.

From the whole amount of cream, put aside a few spoons that we will use for decoration. The rest is divided into 3 parts and is distributed between the well-syruped countertops. Refrigerate for at least half an hour, then cover with chocolate icing and garnish with whipped cream and chocolate curls.
