Chocolate-Bottom Walnut Cake

Chocolate-Bottom Banana Squares is a very popular bake among the bloggers recently.  So I decided to jump on the bandwagon to bake a Chocolate-Bottom cake.  However, I decided to use walnuts instead of bananas.  The recipe ‘Soft Walnut Chocolate Cake’ from Doris of Tested and Tasted shall be used to add to my baking portfolio.

I used a 6” round cake pan and a 7” x 1.5” round alumnimum foil disposable case for this recipe.

This recipe is adapted from Doris of  Tested and Tasted ‘Soft Walnut Chocolate Cake’.  The ingredient amount has been adjusted and tweaked.  Click here for the original recipe from Doris.
