Seeking an elusive Italian Walnut Cream Cake recipe

KitchenRose | Jan 21, 2011 08:55 PM

I hope someone can help me end my recipe search for the Italian Walnut Cream Cake I had more than 15 years ago at Apple Annie's Bakery in Austin, TX. I called and they very generously provided me with a recipe that is NOT it. Apparently they do not feature this item regularly on their menu at this time and the pastry chef has changed.

The cake I'm seeking is a delicate white cake with flecks of black walnut meal dispersed throughout the crumb. The icing was closest to whipped cream. I have scoured the Internet and only found recipes with ground walnuts (but not walnut meal) and the icings have been cream cheese or other types.

Ok, food sleuths...come to my rescue? Thanks in advance!
