Black Walnut Cake w/ Ganache Filling
adapted f/ Simply in Season Cookbook. A rich cake--great for special occasions. Please note that this recipe makes 16 servings--this is a very rich cake, so a small slice is totally satisfying (I've even cut it into 24 servings before with no complaints). It's a rich, satisfying dessert despite it's simplicity (or maybe because it's so simple!). Of course, the ganache filling can be skipped, if you prefer another. I generally frost the cake with a simple cream cheese frosting (recipe not included). Depending on how thick you make the filling layer, you may have extra ganache, which can either be drizzled over the cake OR you can let it chill till almost hard, roll it into balls, roll in cocoa powder, and viola! you have truffles.
