This was quite possibly the best cake I've ever had. I adore homemade pound cake to begin with, and when you add the fabulous flavor of black walnuts, it is really something special.
I can't help but wonder if the reviewer who called this recipe "bland" didn't mistakenly use English walnuts instead of the black walnuts that were called for?
This is not an in-your-face commercial-tasting cake nor an over-the-top super chocolate, chocolate something. It is the perfect blend of creamy butter, flour, sugar and earthy/mapley black walnuts.
I made this for my husband's birthday, and I am going to bake a fresh one for my mother's Christmas present. She knows how much work I put into gathering and processing these black walnuts!
