Right on point for fall, this walnut cake is so good, it might become a statement in my house!


  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 stick of butter, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp of almond milk (any kind works here because the amount is so small)
  • 3/4 cup of walnuts, plus 1/4 for the toppings
  • 1 pinch of salt


Preheat the oven at 350F.

Cream the butter with the vanilla, the eggs and the maple syrup until completely smooth and creamy( takes 3-4 minutes).

Sift the flour, baking soda and salt. Add alternatively the dry ingredients with the milk to the butter-egg mixture.

Place the 3/4 cup of walnuts in the food processor and pulse until fine.  Fold in the batter.

Pour in a greased bread loaf pan and sprinkle the rest of the walnuts on top. Bake for 40-45 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

Enjoy as it is or with a dollop of whipped cream on top!!!
