Fold this mass in the butter mass. In the end fold flour, grated walnuts and biscuit cumbs in. Fill it in a cake ring and bake it at 180 degrees for 50 minutes. Afterwards, let it cool down.
  2. Whisk whipped cream till stiff for the nut-rum cream. Warm up milk and granulated sugar at 85 °C and stir the egg yolks in. Soak gelatin sheets, squeeze them, warm them up in Inländerrum and let them disperse. Fold the gelatin in the milk-egg yok mass and let it cool down until the gelatin begins to thicken. Now fold the whipped cream in.
