With a walnut tree in the garden, October is always a busy month. Busy because we have to be quick. Very quick. Quicker than the squirrels! They love the walnuts as much as we do. But they have an advantage: they just climb up the trunk of the tree and get the walnuts from the branches. We, humans, have to wait, wait until the walnuts fall off the tree. Just hoping that the squirrels have left some for us!
This year, the harvest is good: boxes full of walnuts. A whole lot more than last year. Or were we just quicker and more observant?
Well, all these walnuts need to be used.
To start with cake, a walnut-cinnamon cake.
Here's what you need:
And this is what comes out of the oven after about 45 minuten on 175°C
As a little bit of batter was left, I used it for mini-bundt-cakes
Tastes delicious with some whipped cream too!
Oh and I added a 'personal touch': some cider spices :)
Will definitely bake and/or cook more using the walnuts.
To be continued...
Wishing you all a nice weekend!
Ours is filled with a family reunion & a nice dinner to celebrate the birthday of a friend!
Happy Birthday Eline!
