Homemade Walnut Cake

in hive-174578 •  3 months ago  (edited)

Once upon a time I needed a walnut cake recipe and what better way to search for one then run a Google search. So I did and because Google is my friend, it gave me a recipe, a video that you'll find on the bottom of the post.

It looked good and not extremely complicated, I said why not try it out and I did. I can confirm you, it was the best decision I could make as it became everyone's favorite. However I need to mention that it took me a some time to adjust it to my and my family's taste.

Suggestions

If you don't like chocolate, you can use any flavor you want.
If you don't want to use pudding, you can use corn starch and whatever flavor you prefer.
Instead of walnut you can use hazelnuts, almonds, pistachios, cashews etc.
You can add rum aroma if you like.

This is the original recipe.
