Chocolate Walnut Cake

This decadent, omega-3-rich cake was inspired by flourless Passover nut cakes. It's better if it sits overnight so the marmalade or jam can mellow with the chocolate and soak into the cake.

This cake was excellent! Toasting and grinding the walnuts took some effort but it was well worth it in the end. I replaced the vanilla extract with Grand Marnier since I was out, and used apricots preserves for the middle filling. Making it the day before to let the jam soak in was good advice, it turned out really moist.

I made it for a birthday, so to make more special I added a thin coat of chocolate frosting on the sides, and pressed some ground walnuts over the frosting. Then I covered the top with whipped cream and added birthday decoration. Everyone really like it! See a picture of the final cake at http://www.flickr.com/photos/sopha/4411233067/
