Yes, for this post it is all about fillings. However, out there in our real life it is all about feelings.
It is January 20, 2017. and in the USA it is the most important day – Inauguration Day!
Congratulations USA! Donald Trump is officially the 45th U.S. president!
For this special day full of feelings let me make the best chocolate walnut torte with so many fillings that will let you forget
reality and enjoy my chocolate drama. After all isn’t a democracy all about “the chocolates”? If you disagree with me I will respectfully call you “deplorable”.
Just kidding…or not…I am not sure how I feel about people who don’t like chocolate.
Now, we have work to do. Let’s make it happen.
So fare we made two 8-inch round cakes.
Now, let’s connect them together by making two different fillings.
FIRST MAIN FILLING:
2 + 1/2 CUP MILK
10 EGG YOLKS
7 TBSP SUGAR
6 TBSP FLOUR (AP)
2/3 CUP BUTTER
3/4 CUP ICING SUGAR
Place milk in a large saucepan over medium heat. (until almost boiled)
Whisk egg yolks, sugar and flour until well combined.
Pour hot milk mixture over egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly.
Return mixture to saucepan over low heat.
Cook, stirring constantly, for 15 to 20 minutes or until custard thickens and coats the back of a metal spoon.
Cool the mixture and then add butter and sugar mixture.(see note)
Note: In a separate bowl mix 2/3 cup butter and 3/4 icing sugar.
Now divide the fillings into 2 parts.
First filling: Yellow filling + 3/4 cup melted chocolate
Keep mixing the chocolate until you get the following …SEE THE PICTURE BELOW. So, this was your chocolate filling.
Now, let’s make the walnuts yellow filling.
Second filling: Yellow filling + 1 cup walnuts
The last part is just whip 1 cup whip cream.
Now, let’s build the torte.
First walnut cake + 1 cup whipped cream + Yellow Walnut Cream + Chocolate Cream + 2nd walnut cake + yellow walnut cream + chocolate cream
- Walnut cake + 1 cup whipped cream
Add yellow walnut filling
Add Chocolate Filling
Add second walnut cake
Cover whole cake with the yellow walnut filing, add chocolate filling on the top. Decorate more if you wanted…Find the fridge
and keep the best chocolate walnut torte in the fridge for at least 8 hours or longer. ( I usually just leave it overnight.)
As soon as you wake up, find a knife in your kitchen and reword yourself with the best chocolate walnut cake in this Universe.
See your piece of cake!
