This is a superb maple walnut cake recipe and I don’t know about you, but I absolutely adore the maple and walnut flavour combination.

For many years my favourite ice-cream was Maple Walnut so I was delighted to stumble upon this great recipe.

Be warned, though, about the great baking imposter – maple flavoured syrup (AKA pancake syrup). Just don’t go there. Ever. Please.

Use real maple syrup, not poor imitations. I know they’re cheaper, but it’s worth splashing out a bit extra on the real thing to get the authentic flavour.

This moist dense, bursting with flavour Maple Walnut Cake recipe is from the very talented Lavender and Lovage.
