French Walnut Cake

Look­ing to bake a last minute cake, that isn’t your typ­i­cal choco­late cake or fruit cake? Try French wal­nut cake! The oth­er day, I decid­ed at the last minute to bake a cake for dessert, but we were out of bak­ing choco­late and fruit. Then I remem­bered we had a bag of wal­nuts, and I had the idea of mak­ing a French wal­nut cake! Found a great recipe, and in no time, had a deli­cious wal­nut cake ready! And I am so glad I did, because wal­nut cake turned out to be deli­cious! Enjoy!

Recipe in French here. (Please note, I made a few minor changes to it). I also used rum extract, instead of rum liquor.

Instruc­tions
  1. Pre­heat oven to 350 degrees Fahren­heit.
  2. If your wal­nuts are not already minced, mince them using a food proces­sor. Mix 1/2 of the sug­ar with the minced wal­nuts.
  3. Soft­en the but­ter. Mix the soft­ened but­ter with the oth­er half of the sug­ar. Add your wal­nut-sug­ar mix­ture. Mix. Add the eggs, one at a time, while still mix­ing. Add the salt, a pinch of salt, the flour and the rum extract. Mix again.

  4. Cov­er a 9 inch (22cm) tart pan with parch­ment paper, and pour the mix­ture into it. Bake for 25–30 min­utes (depend­ing on your oven). It is ready when you can put a knife into it and the knife comes out dry. It should be soft in the inside, and slight­ly brown on its sur­face.
  5. Option­al: you can sprin­kle the top with minced wal­nuts, and add whole wal­nuts for dec­o­ra­tion. Enjoy!
