“After searching quite a lot, I finally found this recipe that pretty well duplicates the maple nut cake they served at our local buffet before it closed down. I found it at My husband dearly loves this cake, with it's maple-y goodness and walnuts. It goes very well with the Maple Butter Frosting (found at same website), which I'll post separately.”
