Layered Crust Caramel Walnut Cake

On with 0 Comment
Who doesn't love fresh cake bites filled with caramel and dry fruits? Last weekend, one my closest friends visited our home and she insisted for trying a rich sweet dish. We tried this layered walnut cake which came out well in our third attempt. Walnuts are one of the main ingredients of this cake and skipping it may give you entirely different taste. Layering is not mandatory, but it does make the cake more presentable and irresistible. If you want an egg less cake, you must replace egg yolks with concentrated whipped cream. This cake can be kept refrigerated very easily for at least 4 to 5 days. You can change the topping or icing as per your preferences to give it a personal touch.
