Cake was one of the first things I learnt to bake when I was still a schoolgirl. Over the years, I have made many cakes, both simple and complicated, but a favourite that I keep returning to is this Chocolate Walnut Cake.

Cocoa powder 3 tbsps
Sugar 3/4 cup (150 g)
Butter 180 g

Baking powder 1 1/2 tsps
Walnuts 1/2 cup, roughly chopped
Cream the sugar and butter in a stand mixer.

Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder.
Add it a tablespoon at a time to the mixer pan.
Add the milk and walnuts.
Grease a baking pan and pour in the batter.
Bake in a 160 degree C oven for 40 minutes.
Cool and slice.
