I was looking through this recipe and noticed that it required 800 gms of walnut halves plus some pieces. I buy walnuts in 100 gm bags to snack on and they cost £1.30 so 8 times that would come to £10.40 + an extra bag for the pieces. The recipe also required butter, ground almonds, a vanilla pod, six large eggs, double cream and yoghurt. Factor in your gas or electricity and I think it comes to a hefty price for a home baked cake. Anyone tempted to try it?

800 Gms of walnut halves seems a lot, might it be a typo for 80gms.
Not surprised as the blurb says he is obessed with nuts!
Yes i would give it a go - have a look at the health food shops and see if you can buy your nuts cheaper
Danny its not a typo as the instructions tell you to split it into different amounts
Tesco have 20% off when you buy 3 or more at the moment.
There are some recipes for walnut cakes here and the average is 85gms
Ah! serves 12, that explains it,
Lol also danish my SIL assures me walnuts are dirt cheap over there!
I would warn you to be careful when buying nuts from a health food shop, I did that a few years ago ,I bought some organic cashew nuts but did not find out until much later that they had been infested with larder beetles , they got into nearly everything else like pasta and biscuits and it took a long time to get rid of them all

Islay - if you do have a go at making it, let us know how it turns out.
If you were to plan on making a walnut cake, you would buy a decent size bag of walnut halves (say 500gm). Small "snack-size" packs of anything are a notoriously expensive way to purchase foodstuffs
