Mother’s Walnut Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
This cake is delicious. My son requested d a walnut cake for his birthday and since I had never made one before I went with Taste Of Home for the recipe. The only problems I had were the instructions should list to grease and flour 3 9-inch pans at the beginning of the instructions and there was not enough of the frosting to frost the whole cake. Next time I will double the frosting.
This has become my best cake yet above all the other cakes I make. Absolutely delicious. I poured my batter into 2 - 9" pans instead of 3 - 9" pans. Makes thicker layers and need to bake a little longer. Have to watch it and give the toothpick test until its ready. Had plenty of frosting leftover since going with just a 2 - layer.
This was so easy to make! The middle of my cakes fell, but this doesn't affect the look at all after frosting. One mistake I made was rationing the frosting as a comment below stated the person made a double batch of frosting. One batch is PLENTY. When I make it again, I won't be so stingy as I ended up throwing some frosting away.
We made this cake yesterday and it was fantastic! I added to one layer pastry cream and I put peaches and apricots jam to the other layer. Covered with cream cheese frosting! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
hello, I would love to make this cake, but I do not understand what "shortening" is. as I'm from Slovakia, cannot find it out. Can you please, explain? Thank you so much, Michaela.
I just baked this cake today....delicious....probably will have to bake another one BEFORE the 25th. I used a sheet cake pan and guessed baking time. If anyone could tell me the exact time....I would appreciate it. I baked it for 50 minutes...little long? Anyway, this recipes is a keeper. We loved it!
This is asked for EVERY Birthday by my daughters. It is delicious, although I double the frosting. What can I say... it's delicious!
This is a really good moist cake, I did cut the recipe in half, since it's just two of us. No problems at all. Glad to add this to my keepers.
