Walnut Cake Recipe

~ One Bowl from batter to oven ~"

walnut cake recipe

This walnut cake recipe is one of those made in ONE BOWL!

This walnut cake recipe is one of those Italian cakes that falls into the easy cakes recipes collection. Why? Because it's one bowl from start to oven.

I have to have dessert every night. And one night after dinner I was supposed to be running a simple errand - buy a card at the bookstore. Instead I ended up with a cookbook at the check out and I went home and adapted this recipe to taste like my Aunti Rose's cooking. Something about this recipe reminds me of her and not the way my grandma baked. Regardless...

Walnuts are HUGE in Italian dessert recipes. We grind 'em and chop them into tons of Italian cakes and Italian cookie recipes.

If you want more chocolate and NOT just a drizzle on top see my chocolate walnut cake recipe . It's still walnut-y in flavor - just with a chocolate hit. And if this wasn't even close to what you were looking for scroll below for a list of all the cake recipes I have on my site.

Pumpkin Cake

YIELD: One 9 Inch Cake


* 10 Tbsp of butter (room temp)

* 1/2 Cup of soft sugar

* 2 eggs

* 1 1/2 cups of flour

* 3/4 cups chopped walnuts

* 1/4 teaspoon salt

* 1 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

* 1/4 cup of milk


* 1 Tbsp butter

* 3/4 cup of DECENT ( not junkie dollar store) chocolate


* Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

* Melt butter.

* Place butter in a bowl and beat until thick and creamy.

* Add eggs one at a time and beat after each addition.

* Fold in dry ingredients with milk and walnuts.

* Grease bottom and sides of pan. Too I usually put wax paper on the bottom. And I use a springform - but you can use a 9 inch also.

* Spread the batter in the pan.

* Sprinkle the walnuts over the top and add sprinkle the sugar.

* Bake for -35 mins.

Where's the vanilla?

In other recipes. You will be OK without it here. Promise.

Can I use shortening?

Why? Store out of butter? Please don't. There aren't a lot of ingredients in this recipe. So - I wouldn't sacrifice butter for a chemical laden product.
