l wanted the cake, so I went ahead and searched a little. The first time I made it it was too sweet and the flavour of nutmeg was faint, it did not resemble
the Portuguese cake I was searching for, so I added walnuts and cut the sugar. At least the batter had more scent 🙂
3/4 cup smashed walnut (you can mix in a little of any nuts you might like)
1 1/2 cup of plain flour
2/4 cup yellow sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
3 tsp sodium bicarbonate
1/2 olive oil ( any vegetable oil preferred)
1 1/4 cup of soymilk ( any other nondairy milk) or water
1. Preheat oven 180°C ( 356 F).
2. In a bowl, sift and mix all dry ingredients. Add oil, only then add milk or water. Mix well until batter is smooth.
3. Let the batter sit for about 5 minutes, meanwhile grease a small form.
4. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean when pierced at the center of the cake.
Hope you liked it!
