This recipe comes from a vision  i had but did not turn out anything like the vision….I wanted to bake a cake with a crunchy nutty topping!! Well as you can see it did not turn out like that but the taste was awesome!!! The chocolate cake is the basic chocolate cake recipe i use but i shall write it down anyways so you dont have to search for it on the website.
125 grams of white natural room temperature yogurt
80 grams of oil
160 grams of sugar
2 eggs
100 grams or a bit more of ready made chocolate syrup
375 grams of white flour
2.5 teaspoons or 1 envelope of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and a pinch of salt
Heat the oven to 200 degrees and then prepare the cake batter by mixing all the ingredients together. Lower the oven to 180 degrees and then put the cake batter into a pregreased and flour dusting pan and bake till done. About 30-40 mintues or till an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
1 cup of crushed nuts of your choice, i used peanuts
1 cup (a little less) of sugar
6 big tablespoons of milk
2 teaspoons of butter
heat the sugar in the pan with the milk and let it change color ( MY MISTAKE….i think i should have let it browned much more) and then add the nuts and the butter and mix it well and pour it on top of the COOLED CAKE… you have to pour it immediately so that it doesnt harden. It will harden on the cake
MY MISTAKE: i should have let the sugar and milk brown a bit more or in fact much more… then it would have been a nice toffee color (or so i think) i shall do that next time …Or if any of you do please do share your recipe and the pic with me on my facebook page

  1. Wow, this cake looks so delicious. I was looking for some easy chocolate cake recipes to make. I think it’ll use pecans for the topping. It’s my favourite. It’s great that the ingredients are so simple, chocolate syrup, no need for cocoa powder! Thanks for sharing 🙂
