Recipe "Great chocolate cake with nuts":

Oatmeal dried in the oven
Preheat oven to 180 gr.S.
The first thing I do when preparing baked goods with oatmeal, whether oatmeal cookies or other recipes, it is a little roasted oats in an oven on a dry baking sheet.
I learned this trick a few years ago. I used to think this extra work, but as soon as I began to prepare the porridge so I realized how this simple action improves the taste of baking.
Thus, dried oatmeal on a baking sheet in the ovenfor 5-7 minutes at 180 oC, stirring with a spatula from time to time. Oatmeal should turn slightly golden color and emit a delicious nutty flavor.

Mix the dough for chocolate cake
Let the oatmeal to cool before you add it to the batter.
In the meantime, you lay out the butter and sugar in a bowlmixer. Add the vanilla, flour, salt, baking soda and oatmeal. Mix on medium packed "paddle" speed until the dough is smooth (you can do it manually - the ordinary shovel).

Dough turns sticky chocolate cake
The first time I made this dough, I was sure that all spoiled because the dough out very sticky.
But in fact, so it should be. So do not worry if the dough consistency you will find difficult to putting some on a baking sheet. Below I'll show you how to use it operated without the hassle.

Put the dough on a baking pan half
Put half of the dough on the prepared baking sheet, the laid paper baking dish and smooth it evenly over the baking sheet.
I've been using for the convenience of the wrapper from the oil to the dough is too sticky to stick to your hands.
Bake the cake in the oven at 180 oC for 10 minutes.

Heat the caramel in the microwave
While the cake is baked, put the caramel into a large bowl or deep plate and pour the condensed milk.
Place the cup in the microwave on low power (I use 400 W) at a time for 3-5 minutes.
Then carefully mix the caramel with condensed milk until smooth smooth state.

Cut the nuts with a knife
In addition, slightly fry the nuts and chop with a knife.
(You can crush them with a rolling pin or lightly grind in a blender, but I, for example, like large pieces of nuts in the cake).

We take out the cake from the oven
After 10 minutes of baking, remove the pan from the bottom of the oven Korzh.

Evenly sprinkle with chocolate chips ...

Sprinkle cake with nuts
Then sprinkle with chopped nuts ...

Fill the tart with caramel
And all this on top Pour melted caramel sauce.

Spread on cake dough rest
On top of our cake stuffing Put the remainder of the test.
This step can cause difficulties with the habit. To make it easier to cover the sticky liquid filling inelastic dough, separate the dough into pieces and lay these pieces all the space of the pie.
This is fine if between the pieces will be a little space in which lurks the filling. When baking the dough rise and fully close the stuffing inside the cake.
