      Hello from Portugal! I do wish I could give you more than 5 stars, because in my humble opinion I do beleive it deserves much more. I couldn't find molasses where I live, so I just subsituted with honey, I also added in some cinnamon about 1 1/2 teaspoons, and it came out just lovely. Your mom must of taught you well. Thank you so much for posting, this is a cake I will be making often!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Made this when my son & DIL were over for a vegetarian dinner, & gifted them half of it to take back home ~ The other half was devoured by the 4 of us! I'm not usually one for using that amount of walnuts in anything, but here it worked very well! This is certainly a cake I'll be happy to make again ~ Thanks for sharing the recipe!
