  • 1 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 Cups California walnuts
  • 2/3 Cups buttermilk or sour milk
  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar

For the Walnut Spice Cake

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a bundt pan.

In a large bowl beat together all ingredients except walnuts and toppings on low speed for 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes more; stir in walnuts.

Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let cool before inverting onto a serving plate. Dust liberally with powdered sugar, drizzle with a powdered sugar glaze or serve slices with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
