    I just made this cake and I think it's delicious.
    I did make it in two 8x8 loaf pans and had to increase the baking time by 15 minutes.

    Also, I find the longer it is wrapped in tinfoil, the moister it gets.

    Next time I'm going to add more walnuts...maybe a combo of walnuts, toasted pine nuts and almonds.

    I froze one of the cakes since we're only 4 for the holidays.

    Thank you for a good recipe.
