Festive Nut Cake
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling
I made this cake and was a bit disappointed: it didn't really taste of any particular nut and would have been better adding just one variety. It was quite dry, though a load of cream helps no end. I cut mine in half and added a layer of jam in the middle (a whole jam jar full) and the half under the mid layer, where the jam had soaked in, was really tasty but like I said, the top half was a bit non de-script. The main thing wrong with this cake, though, is that it is incredibly crumbly - for such a large cake, made mainly from chopped nuts, it should have at least double the eggs, though I would try 5. Finally, it did not taste at all spicy - one teaspoon of cinnamon in this sized cake just evaporates. I would add at least 1 tablespoon. Overall, it needs so much adjustment that you would end up with a different recipe entirely so I would just not bother with this one and try a different one with reviews from someone who has actually made it.
