Autumnal Delight

A cake with the sweet flavors of walnuts and honey that is incredibly easy to make and can be served for breakfast or as a snack. 🐝
Walnuts in France are primarily produced in the southern half of the country: Périgord, Dauphiné, Isère, Drôme, and Savoie. They are harvested around autumn. France is currently the leading walnut-producing country in Europe.

Gisou’s Tips and Tricks:

  • I made this cake without butter or added sugar because the walnuts already provide enough fat (which you’ll notice at the end of baking) and the honey offers sufficient sweetness.
  • Among all nuts, walnuts are the richest in polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) and omega-9.
    They are also rich in vitamin E, B-group vitamins, as well as minerals and trace elements such as potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, and iron.
