Chocolate Walnut Cake

What about some chocolate - and some nuts... and a cake?

200g Flour
150g brown sugar
5 Eggs
225g Butter
50g Milk chocolate
75g dark chocolate
50g grounded almonds
50g grounded Walnuts
75g Walnuts
1 tbs Sun flower oil

Sieve Flour into a boil and add one Egg yolk, a pinch of salt, 50g sugar and 125g chopped butter. Pound well together and then put into your fridge for about 45min.
Preheat oven at 180°C. Put your dough into a buttered spring form (diameter: 26cm) and form a about 2.5 cm high edge. Put a sheet baking paper onto your dough and now sprinkle some rice over it. Bake for not more than 20min.
Meanwhile break chocolate into pieces and carefully melt with the rest of the butter. Put the rest of the flour, sugar, grounded nuts and another pinch of salt into a boil and mix well. Add 4 Egg yolks, the sun flower oil and the melted chocolate. Mix very well. Whisk 4 egg whites stiff and add to the chocolate mass. Stir well and put onto your baked dough.
Arrange Walnuts on the cake and put into your oven for 25 min.
