The mixture may curdle slightly, with bits of butter that do not mix in properly.

If this happens, stop beating and stand the bowl in a pan of hot water. Beat by hand until the mixture becomes smooth again (about 1 minute).

Leave to cool on a wire rack.
Remarks
The longer the mixture has to stand before cooking, the more the flavours will develop, so you can prepare it the day before cooking and leave overnight in the fridge.
Keeping
A few days, wrapped in aluminium foil.

  • I love walnuts, so I tried this wonderful cake... easy to prepaire and delicious! The suggestion to dry roast the walnuts helps to a very intensiv walnuts taste, when the cake is ready. My only change was to add a spoon of rum to the egg and sugar mixture.
