Sometimes I just want comfort food- the memories that a familiar recipe bring up when cakes are made for traditional occasions. My dear freind Bob hates to have anyone fuss over him- he won't allow birthday parties. So we have an "Unbirthday Dinner" once a year to say thank you for all he does for us! The almost part to this recipe is that it uses Walnuts instead of pecans- from our trees of course!
