Maple-Walnut Cake

This cake will always be associated with a magical day at the start of maple sugaring season when we took a City Market Farm Tour to Turkey Hill Farm. Farmer Margaret Osha prepared a beautiful lunch for us (maple cured ham, hard boiled eggs boiled in sap water, maple baked beans) and presented this cake for dessert. Baking it in March is truly a special way to honor spring and the traditions of maple sugaring in Vermont.
