Delicious Chocolate Nut Cake

With a classic mix of chocolate and nuts you can rarely go wrong. This is a great recipe for anyone that likes their chocolate cake with an extra special taste.

This chocolate nut cake recipe was given to me by a girl who had been an Air Stewardess. She used to make us laugh with some of her stories. She reckoned she had to deal with a few nutty passengers in her time. Especially the pests who tried to grope her and the other stewardess’ perfected a sharp elbow jab in the, what can I say – “NUTS”!! 🙂
