I scoured the internet for a good recipe, but could not find a good Chocolate Walnut Cake recipes, only Chocolate Walnut Brownie recipes. I could take a moist chocolate cake recipe and add walnut to it, but I'm skeptical if the light batter would be able to support the weight of the nuts, so I scrapped the idea. Finally I decided to try use my brownie like cupcake recipe and add walnuts to it. Alhamdulillah it worked and customary of my family, the test batch was 80% gone within 2 hours of it being served. It's a 1.5kg test batch cake, so now you know why I am surprised :)
Fish had given me a few samples on her preferred decorations and I took a liking to a sample instantly. I was also requested to bake a heart-shaped cake, so here's the final product...
Didn't look exactly as the sample given, but I hope Fish & Rudy had liked it all the same.
Happy Birthday, Rudy!
