200grams butter (or margarine or shortening)
1 cup milk
25grams fresh yeast
pinch of salt
2 eggs (original recipe says another egg yolk)
fruit jam (I tend to use apricot, about two cups)
ground walnut (to taste, approx one cup)
+1 egg white to brush layers
Melt dark chocolate with a couple spoonfuls of milk or cream and cover the cake.
You can use any other jam you like, my faves are apricot or plum(best if a little sour). Alternatively you can experiment with different amounts of walnut or substitute other nuts.
