    Very good cake. Don't over-bake it to keep it moist. If you love black walnuts, you'll love this cake.  -  30 Jun 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    A cake that will have your guests asking for more. Everyone loved this recipe but it was a little too sweet for me so I made a second one but reduced sugar to just ONE cup instead of 1&2/3 cups. It was AWESOME~! I frosted it with homemade cream cheese was to die for~!  -  20 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
