    I love walnut cake, so this must be really good!

    1. Camilla

      It is the best gateux ever – something for a special occassion:-)

  2. Maddy

    Could this be made without the coffee? Would you suggest any substitute or just leave it out?

    1. Camilla

      I hate coffee and never drink the stuff but it just intensifies the chocolate flavour here and if a favourite dessert of my daughter’s. If you really don’t like it then just leave it out!

  3. Paul Wilson

    Walnuts are very healthy, and quite under-used imo.

  4. Ann Robinson

    This looks great and i could do with a slice now
