First make the dough, to do this, mix all the ingredients. Mix the flour with the baking powder "Dr. Oetker", add a pinch of salt, vegetable oil, eggs and warm water. Make an elastic dough. Flour may need a little more.
The dough feels sticky a little, but don't flood the dough with flour, hands can be lubricated with vegetable oil. Close the bowl with cling film and let the dough rest 30 minutes.
Boil the pasta to the state of al dente, when the pasta has cooled add the lemon juice and mix. In advance preheat the oven.
Prepare the stuffing. Walnuts and almonds grind in a blender. Chocolate grate on a small grater. Add the rum and zest of one lemon.
Mix grated chocolate, ground nut, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla from "Dr. Oetker" and the lemon zest.
Will beat into a soft mousse of egg and add them to the pasta.
In the pasta, add the filling and mix thoroughly. To give the stuffing more flavor use almond flavoring "Dr. Oetker". The cake is not very sweet, for those who like sweeter, add in stuffing a couple of tablespoons of sugar.
So far the cake is baked long enough, to make it better to use ceramic or glass form. Prepare the form and do the "French shirt". The form for baking smazhem butter and throw flour, shake off the remnants of flour.
Roll out the dough into a thin sheet to such a size that the edges of the dough hanging down out of shape and could cover our cake top, gently move the dough to the form.
Spread on top of our macaroni-and-nut mass and a little trambeam her inside to have no voids.
Butter will cut the plates and lay them on the stuffing.
Wrap the corners of the dough over the cake so that it completely covers the filling. Carefully zasebnem the dough and slightly press with your hand the entire structure to give a smooth surface. On top again put a plate of butter. Bake the cake in preheated oven at 170 degrees - about 1 hour 20 minutes (orientirueshsya on your oven). If top of cake begins romanitsa, then cover it with foil.
Allow the cake to cool and infuse for at least 2 hours, then carefully turn it onto a plate. For decoration I used a variety of products "Dr. Oetker".
Cake sprinkle with powdered sugar and decorate to your taste.
