A delicious and simple nut cake. This recipe calls for pecans but you can substitute other nuts such as walnuts or almonds.
This recipe was very helpful for my history project. It is President Polk's favorite food. - 19 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
It was really delicious, I tweaked the recipe slightly. I only used half the hickory nuts since they are difficult to deshell. I added 1/2c of dried pomegranates. Then I thought a lite glaze would be excellent so I made a lemon glaze using 1/2c confectioner's sugar, 2 1/2tsp milk, and a little more than 1/4tsp of lemon extract. It came out great and my nephews and niece love it. - 18 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Does anyone know if you can make this ahead of time and freeze it? - 14 Sep 2017 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
