Maple Walnut Cake
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling
I have only made this cake 1 time, but will make it many more times. The flavor was wonderful. I did change the frosting though and made a Brown Sugar maple flavored butter cream frosting. This hit the spot with everyone I served it to.
HELP! My husband is allergic to buttermilk! Is it possible to substitute something else?? Thanks in advance!
This is such a wonderful cake! I've been making it for years, and it continues to be one of my favorite go-to layer cakes. I use maple extract for the cake, but I use pure maple syrup for the frosting. I add about 3 teaspoons of maple syrup in the frosting to get the maple flavor that I like. And to answer jessieg's question below, yes, the layers bake quickly when using three 9" cake pans. I prefer thicker cake layers, so I bake the layers in 8" pans which takes ust a little bit longer.
Can someone please clarify - could it possibly be right to make the cake for only 11-13 minutes??
This cake was one of the best cakes I have ever made! So delicious, moist and creamy. Definitely will be making it again. Today, as a matter of fact; my daughter's birthday!!! Loved the maple glaze between the layers. Maple buttery frosting is to die for! Yummy all around.
This is an excellent cake. It is very buttery and sweet. I might reduce the butter in the frosting next time. I made it for my husband's bday and it was a crowd pleaser.
Great all around...perfect........I have carpotunnel , next time can I use a 9X13 pan? please let meknow cooking time, heat ? Thank you: [email protected]
This cake looks great, but we didn't enjoy the taste. Not enough maple, not enough walnuts, icing tasted more like snow ice cream.
My husband remembers maple walnut cake that mama used to make. Mama isn't around to provide instructions, so I make a different recipe every birthday.I followed this recipe exactly, using Boyajian pure maple flavor (not supermarket extract). The cake was light and tender, but husband didn't think it was mapley enough. If I make this again I'll use more maple flavor.The candied walnuts were a nice combination of sweet and salty with a buttery crunch. They got lost between the layers, but were good on the top.The frosting was very, very buttery and fluffy. Not mapley enough. Won't make this again.The assembly called for drizzling the syrup on top of the icing, between layers and on the top. On the top, the syrup ended up in one puddle. Not attractive. I'd recommend brushing the syrup directly on the cake layers (imbibing the syrup). Also, following the photo, I mounded the candied walnuts in the center of the top of the cake. Looked nice, but impossible to cut. Just sprinkle them evenly over the top.
cake very good....... "old fashion good"........................... how many cupcakes? temp? time? thank you
