Inspired by Katie Nell's recipe and some black walnuts I found at the farmer's mkt this week, I tried this cake. Wonderful-a real walnut lover's dessert! Saturated and moist but not oily, light etheriel texture with an almost melt in your mouth quality. Deflated a bit upon unmolding but had enought structure to hold shape and crumb. The heady black walnut aromas really came through, in fact my husband thought it had some sort of booze in it!
I was going to serve with whipped cream or poached pears as suggested but the cake disappeared fast. Perfect with black tea. Thanks for sharing!
