Toasted Walnut Filling


Use this toasted walnut filling for layer cakes.


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 egg yolk, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup toasted* walnuts, chopped


Combine brown sugar, salt, butter, and water in top of double boiler and heat until sugar is dissolved. Pour over egg yolk, return to double boiler, and cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Cool. Add walnuts. Spread between layers. Makes enough filling to spread between two 8-inch layers.
*To toast nuts, spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in a 350° oven, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes. Or, toast in an ungreased skillet over medium heat, stirring, until golden brown and aromatic.
