How to Make It

Step 1

Place 1 cup chopped walnuts in boiling water 3 to 5 minutes; drain well, and set aside.

Step 2

Cream shortening; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add egg yolks; beat well.

Step 3

Combine 2 3/4 cups flour, baking powder, salt, and spices; mix well. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix well after each addition. Dredge black walnuts in remaining 1/2 cup flour; fold into batter. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.
