  • Toss the chocolate and walnuts with reserved 1 tablespoon of flour. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate and walnuts.

  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool before frosting.

I made it in the pan it asked for and that was a mistake. Next time a different pan maybe Bundt. It took a lot of extra time to cook and by the time the middle was done the outside was burned. Then it didn't taste like anything so after most of it it sat on my table for the rest of the day I threw it out. And I had 6 kids here! What a waste of nuts and chocolate. Read More
