Caramel & nut cake

After 15 minutes of baking, split the upper part of the cake with a buttered knife (without touching the ends) so that it develops harmoniously.
To check for doneness, poke a thin blade of knife into the cake, it should come out dry. If the cake browns too much, cover with aluminum foil while baking.
When the cake is cooked, remove from the oven and let cool. Unmold and let cool.

Cool 2 or 3 spoonfuls of the remaining caramel. Add 50 g of walnuts and mix.
