8 ounces walnuts, finely ground
2-1/2 Tablespoons matzoh meal
6 ounces melted semi-sweet chocolate

Combine egg yolks and sugar.
Add chocolate and beat until smooth.
Gradually add matzoh meal and nuts.
Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into chocolate mixture until well blended.
Bake in 2 ungreased 9-inch cake pans for 30-40 minutes in 350 degree oven.
Cool cake, remove from pans and frost.

1/4 pound butter or margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 ounce Sabra or wine (optional)
4 ounces melted semi-sweet chocolate

Cream butter and sugar.
