Black Walnut Cake (made with english walnuts)
Sadly, there weren’t any black walnuts at the Ann Arbor Farmer’s market this week. Looking at Real Time Farms, it appears they chose this week to be absent. Anyhow, this cake was sugary sweet and delicious. It is suggested you eat the cake warm, which is weird for cake. Being warm helps the cake taste extra sugary. The buttery maple glaze doesn’t hurt, either. If I can find any faults in this warm cake it is that it is too sweet. I think a great counterpart would be some black coffee or bitter tea. There is always breakfast!
