Ready Time

1 hrs 30 mins

Yields

6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup semolina flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease two 8-inch round cake pans, lining the bottoms with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, semolina flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.

Beat in the eggs one at a time, making sure each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.

Beat in the vanilla extract.

Gradually mix in the flour mixture until just combined, being careful not to overmix.

Stir in the chopped walnuts.

Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans and smooth the tops.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let the cakes cool in the pans for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once the cakes are completely cool, you can dust them with confectioners’ sugar and serve.

Slice into 6 equal pieces and serve.

Notes

Use high-quality unsalted butter for the best flavor.

Make sure to bring your eggs to room temperature before using, as this will help them incorporate smoothly into the sugar mixture.

If you’re not a fan of walnuts, you can substitute with another nut of your choice, such as almonds or hazelnuts.

Depending on your oven, the baking time may vary, so keep an eye on the cakes after 23 minutes.

Remove them from the oven when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

For a nice presentation, dust the cooled cakes with a generous amount of confectioners’ sugar.

Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
