A lady from our church on Vancouver Island brought this to potluck and everyone went crazy for it!! It is very good and I love the crunchiness from the walnuts. I wanted to use up about 2 cups of egg whites I had sitting in the fridge....this is a pic of the cake I made today!!

    There is no need to use any frosting on this cake as it is great without it but I mixed up enough powdered sugar with some milk and about 1/2 tsp maple flavor extract to make a thin drizzle which I did put on the cake. I then sprinkle chopped walnuts over the top.
