Chocolate, orange and walnut cake for a double anniversary


We beat the butter together with half the amount of sugar with the mixer until we obtain a cream, we add the yolks and vanilla one by one, we mix more until we incorporate everything well.

Dry the ingredients, flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon, mix them in a bowl with a fork, then gradually add them to the butter composition, mixing for a few seconds.


We add the wine little by little until we mix everything well. At the end we add the chocolate with walnuts, chopped with a knife.

We beat the egg whites together with the rest of the sugar and we incorporate them in the composition with the help of a spatula, from the bottom up.

Pour the resulting composition in a 24cm tray lined with oil and flour or baking paper and put in the preheated oven at 180 degrees for 55 minutes.

Let it cool and cut it into 3 to get 3 sheets.


For cream 1:

We put the whipped cream in a kettle together with the orange peel and heat it on the stove to the boiling point, meanwhile we break the chocolate into pieces and place it in a bowl, and when the liquid whipped cream has reached the boiling point we turn it over chocolate (we use a strainer to prevent the orange peel from falling out), leave it for a few minutes, then mix with a spatula until everything is well blended, add the butter and mix again until we incorporate it into the cream. Let it cool then mix well with the orange essence until the cream becomes fluffy.


For cream 2:

Put the yolks, sugar and starch in a kettle, mix with a fork, and put the orange juice, peel and butter on top. Put everything on the fire and stir continuously until the cream has thickened.

Pour the cream into another bowl, pass it through a strainer and let it cool completely, then mix it well with whipped cream.

For syrup:


Put on the fire in a bowl water, sugar and slices of 2 smaller oranges. Let it boil for a few minutes, then add the essences. Remove the orange slices on a plate, and with the syrup, syrup the leaves well.

Garnish the cake with orange slices on top (optional)


For assembly:

Put the creams in 2 separate bags.

We syrup the first top well, we put the creams in circles, first the chocolate cream, then the orange cream and so on ..., we place the second sheet, we syrup this one too,

we put the creams in the same way, we place the last sheet that we syrup very little, then we cover it with the rest of the chocolate cream.

With the remaining orange cream I made some roses on the edges, and on top I put the orange slices in syrup, I made some chocolate leaves and I put some pieces of walnut kernels!


A delight with lots of chocolate!
