The Kontos family, owners of Kontos Foods, a New Jersey-based provider of traditional Mediterranean foods, would like to share this favorite, dairy-free, recipe. This moist walnut cake is flavored with cinnamon, cloves and orange juice; topped with powdered sugar. It makes a delicious treat during Lent, or anytime!

1-1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup chopped walnuts

I love this recipe. I was just able to get a good sale on walnuts and was looking for more recipes in which to use them. I like the idea of it being dairy-free which is a hangs from mupy other recipes.
