Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine egg yolks and sugar. Beat together until you get a light yellow color.
Add flour, baker’s cocoa, and brown sugar, and fold in until a thick batter forms.
In a separate bowl, whisk egg whites with cream of tarter until soft peaks begin to form.
Slowly fold egg whites into walnut batter 1/3 at a time, until you have a soft, smooth batter.
Prepare 3-5 ramekins by spraying each with non-stick cooking spray.
Slowly add batter to each ramekin, making sure not to fill to the top, as these cakes will bake up nice and fluffy.
Place in oven and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
While cakes are baking, make frosting by combining cream, powdered sugar, and baker’s cocoa and mixing with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
Remove cakes and allow to cool before gently removing them from the ramekins. spread frosting over the top, then serve.
These mini cakes pack a huge amount of flavor! The rich taste of walnuts rings through the whole dish. The cake is super light, fluffy, and moist, with just a hint of flavor from the cocoa. The frosting gives you an added amount of taste and creaminess and is the perfect addition to this already over-the-top dessert.
