The secret to the outstanding flavor of this cake is the buttery, toasted nuts!

I prefer toasting nuts in many many of my recipes as I believe it improves the overall taste and enhances the "nuttiness" in dishes!

Take your time to ensure the glaze is being absorbed into the cake, as well as on the top and sides.

(This is a scrumptious looking AND tasting cake! I need to post a picture!)
