Warm the milk and add some sugar and the yeast. Flour and butter has to be crumbled thereafter add the egg, egg yolk, milk-yeast mixture, sugar and knead it. Share the dough into 3 equal parts and roll out for 20X35 cm what is the size of your mold. Put baking paper into the form and roll the first dough in it.
Grease the dough with half of the apricot jam, strew with half of the walnut-sugar mixture. Put the second rolled dough top of this and layer again the jam-walnut-sugar mix. Put the third dough top of this and pierce with fork avoiding from humpy. Put the cake into 180 C degree preheated oven and bake it 30-40 minutes until nicely browned.
When it is getting cold spread the chocolate glaze which is prepared from cocoa powder, milk, sugar and butter. Mix the cocoa with sugar and milk thereafter stir and cook it, boil just some minutes. When it is glossy, close the heat and add the butter and continuously stir it. Wait 5 minutes when the glaze is cooling and smooth the glaze on top of the cake. You can slice it when the glaze is firm.
