Walnut flour

Hi all

A couple of years ago I found a wonderful cake recipe using ground up walnuts as the flour. Trouble is that I "bookmarked" the recipe on my old computer but forgot to move the link when I bought a new computer. Now I can't find the recipe. I didn't use it last year as I didn't have to many walnuts so can't remember what to do. This year looks like being a bumper crops o I would like to find this (or a similar) recipe again.
Has anyone used walnut flour or has any idea where I can find the recipe? I have spent hours searching Google but it's disappeared.

cheers
Haz

Scrap that!
Just skimmed through "Nuts & Fruits" and found a similar recipe
Saying that - any other recipes would be most welcome. Always looking for new ideas.

Cheers

Try Googling "Walnut Meal" - the proper name for walnut flour.

I thought WALNUT MEAL was ground nuts before being dried to extract the oils. Am I wrong?

Walnut Meal, sometimes referred to as Walnut Flour, can be used as a whole or part substitute for many other (higher carb) flours in baking and cooking. You can use walnut meal in most recipes that require self-rising or plain flour by substituting up to a quarter (1/4 by volume) of the total amount of flour with walnut meal. This adds a nutty flavor and a darker, richer texture. Also you can substitute 1:1 walnut meal in any recipe that recommends using almond meal. So instead of the almond taste you will get a rich walnut flavor as well as the health benefits of using walnuts.

Thanks!

I've got a large walnut tree in my field and access to several others. I haven't checked the other trees but mine is so laden the branches are bending. Also just checked my reserve stores and I've still got 2 nets of nuts left from last year (didn't realise I had so much left over - thought I'd used them all as it wasn't such a good year.)
So guess who's baking later?

cheers

Thumbing through SO's copy of the Better Homes and Gardens October issue, I came across a recipe for WALNUT CAKE. It's also available online but you have to go to the BHG.com website and register (free) to get the recipe.
