"This cake utilizes hickory nuts. Other nuts could be substituted if you don't have hickory nuts."

This recipe was very helpful for my history project. It is President Polk's favorite food.
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.
I've made this twice and love it. This is a 5 star dish for sure....
