Ingredients (servings: 10)

  • 225 gr/ 8 oz prepared puff pastry
  • 200 gr/ 7 oz walnuts halves
  • 125 gr/ 4 oz dark chocolate
  • 25 gr/ 1 oz butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 125 gr/ 4 oz brown sugar
  • 175 ml/ 6 fl oz maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • optional vanilla ice cream
Take the pastry out of the freezer and let it stay in the fridge for 1-2 hours before you start.
Break the walnuts and pick 50 integral halves or as deemed necessary to cover the pan, and put them aside for later. Cut the rest with a knife into small pieces. We will put them in the mix later.
Butter the ovenproof dish and spread the pastry in it. A round or rectangular pie plate, deep enough, and lift it to cover the sides. Place the pan lined with pastry and the left over dough in the fridge waiting.
Melt the chocolate with butter over low heat in a small saucepan, stirring until homogeneous.
Leave aside to wait.
Beat the eggs and spread a small amount, with a brush, across the surface of the pastry.
Add sugar in the beaten eggs…
the essence of vanilla…
the maple syrup…
the melted chocolate and chopped walnuts…
sift the flour and add it stirring with a spatula.
Pour the mixture into ovenproof dish.
Cut the leftover pastry in any shape you like (hearts, leaves, etc.) and stick it around the bowl in contact with the dough base.
Arrange the walnuts over the top. Make a decorative edge around the pie.
Place in preheated oven at 180°C/ 360°F/ Gas Mark 4 for 50-60 minutes, in the penultimate position of the oven.
Check by pressing the finger at the center of the pot. It should fall slightly and recover.
If not, recheck in a few minutes.
It is certain that you'll enjoy a special cake, with chocolate flavor and well balanced sweetness.
It can be served with ice cream.
