While this is called a cake, it’s not a traditional cake with icing. It’s more what I think of as European cake, meaning a brownie or single serving piece of cake. The recipe directs you to cut the baked cake into squares when done. And while it calls for walnuts only, you could add chocolate chips and these would be a version of blonde brownies.
Sift 1 c flour, 1/4 teas soda, pinch of salt, 2 c B. sugar, 2 c walnuts. Add 3 eggs well beaten. Spread over large square pan or 3 pie tins. Greasepan well.
Bake slowly (burns easily) When half cold cut in squares.
