I love baking!
It’s my stress relieving mechanism that I lust for every weekend as the aromatic combinations from the pure vanilla extract and the exotic blend of melted chocolates fills the air and offers the tranquility which I often desire.
The aroma of the roasted Shimla walnuts filled the air competing with the Ooty chocolates melting away in the bain-marie. A recipe that’s fairly easy with ingredients readily available in your baking cabinet to create a slice of cake that’s a perfect merriment for the afternoon tea.
My own twists to the cake with use of Shimla walnuts, I’ve now christened the recipe as a Shimla Walnut and Chocolate Cake with a hint of Kahlua for that ultimate coffee-flavored rum taste to the cake!
