Spiced mud cake or chocolate cake

2 dl flour
1 tea spoon clove, whole
1 tea spoon allspice, whole
1 tea spoon cinnamon
200 gr butter
2.5 dl sugar
3 eggs, large or 4 small
2.5 dl walnuts, coarsely chopped
100gr dark chocolate

Flour, butter, sugar, chocolate and walnuts are available from organic agriculture.

Clove, cinnamon, sugar and chocolate are available as fair trade products.

I have not found allspice as neither Fair Trade nor Organic. Instead I used by some of my private stash my father gave me some years back...

How to do it:

Turn on the over at 175 Celcius.

Grind the allspice and clove.
Mix them and cinnamon with the flour.

Mix butter and sugar til it gets smooth.

Melt the chocolate and add to the sugar-butter mix.

Add one egg at a time to the chocolate mix,
and stir til it gets smooth and shiny.

Add the spiced flour and the walnuts to the mix.

Butter and bread crumb a oven proof container,
ca 20 by 30 cm.
Put the dough in their and in to oven.

15-20 minutes will make mud cake
30 minutes will make a sponge cake.

In either case:
It is good served with some whipped cream :-)
whipping cream is also available from organic agriculture!

Youre surrounded by traditional farming in Braga, you can get must of those products like eggs and butter directly from the producer ;)

Sometimes I go to the "mercado municipal" in Braga but is mostly for buying fish.

With traditional you mean farming as it was before the so called "green revolution" (NOT Ghaddafi!)?

The amount of spraying contraptions in the horticulture stores makes me wonder what they but on the crops ...

hope you like the cake. when i did it i kind of forgot it for 40min in the oven so it was a bit dry ...

thanks, eating green certainly is part of making the world better a better place. for our own sakes, though we should take it easy with the calories :-)
