Chocolate Walnut Cake

If I had more willpower I wouldn't watch so much reality TV.
If I had more willpower I would resist checking my text messages as often.
Willpower is overrated!  I made Chocolate Walnut Cake!

Chocolate Walnut Cake
I think eating healthy is really important most of the time.  Even so, life would be so boring if we didn't break the rules from time to time.  I am never going to pass up a great glass of red wine, and I will never not eat chocolate.  So when I saw this picture is Crazy Sexy Kitchen I knew it would only be a matter of time before I had to make it.  Here is what you will need to find yourself in chocolate bliss:
 I really wasn't sure how this cake would hold together without the eggs? I was afraid it would just crumble into pieces. I was careful to follow the instructions not to over stir the cake.  I folded the ingredients together.  Ya know what I got in return?  The most moist cake ever!  Not to mention when my kids wanted to lick the batter from the bowl, I could say go for it because there weren't any eggs.
I did have some issues with the frosting for some reason.  I poured all my ingredients together to make the frosting, but it just became a liquidity mess.  So I started over adding my dry ingredients first, and then adding the liquid ingredients a little at a time.  That time it came out great. The cake was addicting.  It wasn't as sweet as most chocolate cakes, and the walnuts in the batter really made this cake taste amazing.  
I bet you want a piece huh! 


  1. That cake really looks great! Can't wait to try it!!

  2. I'm making this for my birthday this weekend! Thanks for the tip on making the frosting.
