The instruction how to make Nut & chocolate cake

  1. Preheat oven to 160u00b0C. Brush a round 20cm cake pan with melted butter to lightly grease. Line the base with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Combine the prunes and brandy in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 45 minutes to macerate.
  3. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the flour. Sift remaining flour together with allspice in a medium bowl. Add the almond meal and stir to combine.
  4. Use an electric beater to beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, until combined. Use a large metal spoon to fold in half the flour mixture until just combined. Repeat with the rest of the flour.
  5. Drain the brandy from the prunes and discard. Add the macadamias, almonds, chocolate pieces and reserved flour. Use a metal spoon to gently fold the prunes into the butter mixture.
  6. Spoon the cake mixture into the lined pan and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon. Bake, in preheated oven, for 1 1/2 hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and stand for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool. If desired, brush with the extra brandy over the top. Dust with cocoa powder before serving.
