Recipe Notes

  • Keep the cake in the refrigerator for up to 5-6 days in a closed container.
  • You can replace the walnuts with any other nut. If you want, you can make the cake with all-purpose flour only.
  • The cake can be frozen up to one month, well wrapped.
  • Serve the cake at room temperature rather than cold from the refrigerator.
