Ingredients Nutrition


  1. FOR THE CAKE: Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend for 30 seconds, or until the nuts are finely chopped.
  2. Pour batter into a 10-inch buttered springform pan and bake in a 350°F oven for about 30 minutes, or until a cake tester, inserted in center, comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan. Remove cake from pan.
  3. When cool, swirl Chocolate Buttercream on the top, in a decorative fashion and frost the sides. This is a low cake, so don’t think anything went wrong. Serves 8.
  4. FOR THE BUTTERCREAM: In a bowl, stir together melted chocolate and melted butter until blended. Stir in vanilla. Yields 3/4 cup frosting.
  5. NOTE: If you own a microwave oven, chocolate chips and butter can be melted together by placing in a bowl and microwaving for 1 minute on high. Turn the bowl and microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Stir together until blended.
  6. If you don’t have springform pan then use a regular 10 inch pan and put parchment paper or waxed paper to cover the bottom of cake pan. Grease and sprinkle with flour and the cake will come out.
