About this recipe: One of my best home-grown recipes. Very crumbly and still moist as well as being just full of walnuts it'll leave you wanting more.
Beating in the eggs until paled and slightly fluffy gives for a lighter, fluffier sponge.
Baking heat HAS to be wrong on this, as after 30-40 mins and gas 6 and prepared EXACTLY as recipe, i was left with a burn't cake with a soggy middle. What a complete waste of time and money If anyone else want to try this, i suggest cook on gas 4 for 60 mins - 01 Nov 2012
My first attempt at this resulted in a sagging middle and slightly burnt edges, but taste and texture were OK. For the next one, at wife's suggestion I reduced the baking powder to 1 teaspoon and covered the cake after 30 mins and baked on for another 20 mins ('til the skewer came out clean) I might try 170 fan next time to avoid having to cover it. It looked and tasted excellent. - 25 Mar 2016
The cakes I've made use 180 max for 45 mins. I boobed by using fresh coffee. You need to add 50-70g extra flour if you do that - 16 Mar 2016
