Holy Cow, is this chocolatey! I made this gluten-free, substituting corn starch for flour, and extra strong coffee (4x) for the chocolate liqueur. It got raves, but you can only eat a small amount. Next time I will grease and flour the bottom of my pan. [Note: walnuts have a lot of oil in them, and there is a fine line between ground walnuts and walnut butter. You may want to add the flour to the nuts as you grind them.]

Made this for a dinner party... everyone loved it. Just the right amount of chocolate flavor without being way over the top. My only complaint was that it didn't taste cofee-y at all.... just chocolately. Might need to add instant coffee. Did use the tip with putting the flour in with the walnuts... worked great.

Wow, this is definitely a keeper!! Simple and fast- very chocolately, very decadent! Wonderful for company. As with the previous reviewer, I found it helpful to add flour when grinding the walnuts. Looks and tastes even better when served with fresh raspberries (and a raspberry coulis if you have time).
