4CAKE: Cream together, softened butter, sugar, eggs and milk.
5CAKE: add dry ingredients to wet and mix well.
6CAKE: mix in chopped walnuts (original recipe calls for chopped but I found them too heavy, so I grind them roughly in my mini food processor).
7Pour into a greased 9 x 9 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and tooth pick comes out dry when testing.
8Allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes, cut top into diamond shapes, pour syrup all over cake making sure it saturates cake evenly. Allow to sit for a few hours, cut and enjoy.
