A  delicious and very sweet old school real food cake

This cake from an era, when people ate sugar and butter and flour… Very sweet, very rich. Buttercream and chocolate and a lot of crunchy nuts.

This is a cake from my childhood. The cake from a time when calories were burned playing in the yard. But still. This simple and rich cake was my favourite at this time and now, as well.
Well, now I just use less sugar and more cacao :)…
