whenever i go out to the demonstration and research garden (demo garden, as we call it) to work with my fellow master gardeners, i always bring something freshly baked. most of the time, it is a bundt cake. every now and then, it is a loaf cake, a batch of muffins or scones or some sort of homemade bread. this cake is a quick and easy recipe to follow that makes a tasty cake. it can be made with apples or pears and either way will be equally decadent.
preheat the oven to 350. grease and flour the cake pan and set aside. place the walnuts on a baking pan and toast in the oven until slightly fragrant, about 5-7 minutes. allow the nuts to cool.
