Chocolate Walnut Cake
Posted 03 November 2011 - 11:23 AM
Not quite chocolate, coffee or vanilla, this cake is a delicious amalgam of ground nuts and eggs, and we bet it's the best cake you'll ever eat. It's also flourless, making it easily gluten-free. It's from chef George Bernas, who with his wife, Doris, owns and operates the Brandywine Inn, a small, 40 seat restaurant in Monroe, Ohio. They serve this at the restaurant's Thanksgiving dinner. Use gluten-free bread for a gluten-free cake. To toast nuts, place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, watching carefully. You'll need a food processor and stand mixer to make this cake.
My cooking project this weekend will be a Chocolate Kahlua cake, so this recipe will be put on my "to do" list.

I have plenty of gluten free bread crumbs available...will have to make this my next experimental baking project. I don't have a weight problem, so always have cakes, brownies, or cookies on hand.
I have a recipe that sounds similar...bread crumbs and nuts and buttercream frosting. It is fabulous!
