This cake is absolutely delicious! It smelled so good in the oven that as soon as it came out I had to have a piece. Highly recommended if you have company coming over last minute. No need to frost, it's perfect just the way it is!

This cake is not a cake it is more like corn bread. Although it is good, it is definitely not a cake in the traditional sense of the word. If you want something dense with a lot of walnuts that is a little on the dry side, then you've found it right here...sorry.

I'm so glad I finally found this cake recipe -- we used to make it years ago, but it was lost during a move! It's absolutely wonderful! Enjoy!
