A moist and rich cake flavored with orange and honey, but not too sweet. This could almost be used as a breakfast cake, definitely as a snack cake and of course, as a dessert cake with a nice dusting of powdered sugar.


Are you making this? 
1 1/2 cups walnuts; toasted and chopped
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch Salt
4 large Eggs
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon orange zest; finely grated
Powdered sugar; for garnish

Original recipe makes 6



Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9? springform pan, tube pan or cake pan with cooking spray (I used a tube pan).

Grind walnuts in food processor until finely ground, but not powdery. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and pulse briefly to combine.

In mixer, beat eggs until frothy, 2 minutes or so. Add sugar and honey, and continue to beat until thick and pale, 3-4 minutes. Lower speed and add walnut / flour mixture in steps until just mixed. Add orange juice, applesauce, orange zest and olive oil and beat just until combined.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Place pan on baking sheet lined with foil and bake until tester comes out clean, approximately 40 minutes.

Cool cake completely on rack. If desired, dust with powdered sugar before serving.

Good cake. A little strong, I guess it was the honey, but I would make this again. I used a mix of orange juice & confectionary sugar for the icing. The sifted confectionary sugar over the top of the icing on the cake.

... In case of any mishaps, melt chocolate and drizzle on top of the burnt cake. Good luck!
