For the French Spice Star, first peel the peel of the orange with a peeler -without the white part- and cut into julienne strips. Squeeze the orange and reduce both with the red wine in a small saucepan for about 15 minutes bubbling to about 1/8 liter of liquid. Drain through a sieve.

Cream butter, brown vanilla sugar and sugar.

Gradually stir in one egg at a time.

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Sift the baking powder and flour together.

Stir into the butter-sugar mixture alternately with the cooled red wine punch.

At the end add the chopped walnuts, the grated chocolate and the spices.

Pour the batter into a greased and floured star-shaped cake pan (about 1.5 liters capacity).

Bake the cake on the middle shelf for about 45 minutes.

Let the French spice star cool for approx. 5 min., turn out of the pan and either sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with half walnuts or continue processing, see tip.
