Add flour and stir briefly until smooth. Stir in nuts and scrape batter into prepared pan. Prepare top layer by me;ting chocolate and butter together in a double boiler. Off the heat, whisk the sugar whipping cream, salt, espresso, and vanilla. Add the egg and egg yolks one at a time, whisking well after each addition. Stir until smooth.
