This is a delicious cake, and may also be baked as three 8 inch layers. If you do, use black walnuts mixed with some icing to fill the layers, and ice with the plain icing. Then sprinkle top with additional chopped black walnuts.

I made this cake for my daughter's 12th birthday yesterday. I called it my I-cake since it's the first recipe I'd made from the internet. It was a tremendous success. There is one error in the recipe though. It states to bake for 90 minutes. I baked for 25 minutes and it was golden brown. Thanks Cali for sharing!! Debbie in NC Read More

This is a delicious cake and the taste of black walnut is not overwhelming! The cooking time is NOT off if you use a bundt pan - it cooked for 80-90 mins. I made this cake for my husband's birthday in a fancy bundt pan just sprinkled with confectioner's sugar before serving rather than frosting it it got RAVE reviews. Read More
