First prepare the cake part. To do this, beat the egg yolks and 2/3 of the sugar until creamy (use an electric mixer). In another bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt. When they get foamy, add the remaining sugar and whisk until stiff peeks. In a third bowl, combine the dry ingredients – the flour, ground walnuts, crushed biscuits, vanilla and baking powder. Finally, carefully incorporate the second and third mixtures into the first one. Work gently with a spatula.

Pour the batter into a loose-bottomed round cake tin of 20-22 cm, lined with baking paper. Bake the cake in the oven at 170°C for about 25-30 minutes. Check with a toothpick if it’s cooked to the right point. Cool on a wire rack.

Then proceed with the preparation of the cream. Mix the walnuts and milk in a pan and bring to a boil. You will fast get a thick cream. Let cool. Meanwhile, cream the butter with the icing sugar and vanilla. When the walnut cream and the butter cream have the same temperature, whip them together.

Cut the cooled cake in two parts. Place the bottom half on a suitable tray and damp it with syrup. Spread the cream in an even layer. Then place on top the other cake half. Damp with syrup as well.

Refrigerate the cake and, meanwhile, prepare the icing. To do this, heat all the ingredients on low heat. When they melt into a smooth cream, pour over the cake. Decorate to taste and serve after 3-4 hours in the refrigerator so that the icing sets.
