This is an old recipe of mine that I've been making for years. It calls for walnuts but you could use other nuts such as almonds or hazelnuts, if you prefer. Tastes good on it's own or with lemon-cream cheese icing.
I have baked this cake a few times now as it is an all time favourite. I put the mixture into a Tray Bake Tin and find it bakes a lot quicker and is easier to cut into slices for coffee morning etc. - 18 Oct 2013
The recipe says 9*17.5cm tin, the closest I have is a a small loaf tin. Having used it I found the baking took longer. I think this recipe needs a 9 inch cake tin - 11 Dec 2017
Second time making it again and the kids say it is the best ever. Thanks Tom. I make this in a Bunt (round with whole) cake pan and cook for 35-8 mins testing after 34 mins. Don't add nuts as kids don't unfortunately like them. No icing either as it is just great the way it is straight out of the oven. Love it. Thanks - 25 Oct 2014
