1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line an 8 inch cake pan. Toast the walnuts in the microwave for 20 seconds and add 1/2 a tsp flour to the walnuts and chocolate chips to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.

2. In a bowl, add the eggs 2 at a time along with vanilla and beat until light and fluffy.

3. Add the sugar and beat again. Add the oil and continue to beat.

4. Place a seive over the bowl and add the plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and coffee powder. Sieve it in to the wet ingredients.

5. Mix gently until a smooth batter is formed. If needed beat lightly with the beater.

8. Remove from the oven and wait till the cake cools and then remove from the pan.

1. Each oven is different, my oven took 60 minutes to bake this cake. Start checking after 50 minutes.
2. Do not over bake the cake, the walnuts and the cocoa powder has a slight bitter nature to it and over baking this cake can make your cake slightly bitter.

Bible blessing
The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? Psalm 118:6
