Walnut Pound Cake

Walnut Pound Cake
 
Recipe from George Brown College, Art of Cakes

Notes: As I'm going to be away for Christmas this year, I've been planning some baking to give to my parents and family. One idea I had was to make a pound cake filled with those honey-glazed walnuts you can get at T&T Supermarket. I used the traditional pound cake recipe from the George Brown class I took years ago, which uses both butter and shortening. I added almost a cup of toasted walnuts, plus a small container, maybe half cup, of the honey-glazed walnuts. The cakes (two 9" loaves) took a long time to bake, and perhaps I overbaked it, as it was a bit dry. Also, I should have covered the cake with foil before letting it bake longer. The walnut flavour is not pronounced enough for my liking. I would toast the nuts longer, or use more of the T&T nuts next time.
