Very good cake. Don't over-bake it to keep it moist. If you love black walnuts, you'll love this cake.

A cake that will have your guests asking for more. Everyone loved this recipe but it was a little too sweet for me so I made a second one but reduced sugar to just ONE cup instead of 1&2/3 cups. It was AWESOME~! I frosted it with homemade cream cheese frosting..it was to die for~!
