  • You'll Need:
  • A 10 inch tube pan (a normal Bundt tin)
  • For The Cake:
  • 6 large eggs
  • 402g Unsalted Butter at room Temp
  • 402g Caster Sugar
  • 460g Icing Sugar
  • 172g Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 300g Chopped Walnuts
  • For The Glaze:
  • 170g Icing Sugar
  • 60g Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 4 to 6 tps milk


    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, 350 degrees F. Prepare the pan by buttering lightly.
    2. Cream the butter (make sure the butter is very soft) on a medium speed and gradually add the caster suagr (NOT the icing sugar) beating until light and fluffy.
    3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add the icing sugar, beating to blend well
    4. Grab a wooden spoon, and by hand stir in the flour and cocoa until well blended, and then add the walnuts.
    5. Pour the batter in the prepared tin, spreading evenly with a spatula. Put in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is set and the edges are beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan. (Bare in mind, the cake has a gooey centre, so the skewer method will not work)
    6. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 1 hour and 30 mins. This may seem alot but it is needed. The cake is not particularly strong, so flip it out directly onto the plate and cool for 2 hours
    7. For the Glaze: While you're waiting for the cake to cool, mix the icing sugar, cocoa and 4 tps of milk. Beat with a mixer until the mixture has a smooth texture. Add more milk to get the consistency for drizzling. When the righ consistency is reaching, drizzling over the coole cake.

ok, so I managed to find another recipe which had the same quantities and PLEASE NOTE!! YOU NEED 240g OF FLOUR (I used plain.. all the recipes I saw had 'all purpose') this is not on the recipe above, although the instructions do include adding flour! Once i sorted the flour issue, this was an AMAZING cake.. so delicious, although I'd say it serves more like 20 than 8!! It's very rich and filling, and gooey! DEEEE-LISH!
