Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a swissroll tin.
In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the flour. Finally, stir in the chocolate sauce until well blended. Spread evenly into the prepared tin.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven. While the cake is baking, you should prepare the icing.
In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, evaporated milk and butter. Bring to the boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate pieces until mixture is smooth and the chocolate is melted. When the cake comes out of the oven pour the hot icing over the hot cake. Sprinkle the nuts over the top. When cake is cool, cut into 5cm squares.
