  • 200 g quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
  • 175 g butter
  • 30 g caster sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 65 g plain flour
  • 65 g buckwheat flour
  • 40 g chopped walnuts
  • dash of amaretto


  1. Snap the chocolate into a large bowl, add the butter and place over a pan of simmering water, until melted, stirring regularly. You should get creamy texture. Leave to cool for a few minutes.

  2. Add the sugar into the mixture and then egg one at a time. Add the mixture of plain and buckwheat flour as well as chopped walnuts. Add a dash of amaretto liqueur. You should get thick and smooth batter.

  3. Pour the batter into a loaf pan (21cmx11cm) lined with baking paper, leaving enough paper to hang over two sides of the pan for easier unmolding. Bake the cake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 25-30 minutes. The cake should be a moist, not so dry.

  4. Allow to cool and then carefully transfer to a large chopping board and cut into slices. Delicious served with a dollop of whipped creme or a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
