Too many walnuts in this recipe and a little too sweet for our taste otherwise tasty. (I added cinnamon to the mix for taste).

I take out the baking powder after my first time making it as I believe it leaves an after taste. I also swap the nuts for chocolate chips so my littles can enjoy the cake too. Takes 45/48 minutes and perfect

Worked out really well. Kept in oven for around 45 mins and it came out perfect. Very tasty.
