  2. Get four large eggs and separate the whites from the yolks.
  3. Whisk the egg whites till nice and fluffy and add a quarter of a cup of granulated sugar. Continue whisking till stiff.
  4. Fold in half a bar of melted butter, half a cup of milk, half a cup of brewed coffee straight from the percolator (note: if, for whatever reason, you prefer to use instant coffee, dissolve three tablespoons in half a cup of warm water), five tablespoons of chocolate powder, an eight of a cup of brown sugar, two bottlecaps of rum, the yolks, and the dry ingredients.
  5. Blend till smooth, pour in a greased pan, and leave till everything levels out. Top with crushed walnuts.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 150°C for 30 to 40 minutes.
  7. Let the cake cool before removing it from the pan.
