A Black Walnut & Apple Torte
In my opinion there is nothing better than a sweet treat for breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, I love savory things too, but just give me a piece of french toast, some cinnamon raisin pancakes and anything drizzled in maple syrup and I am all set.
So here is the latest an greatest morning sweet treat I have tasted. It comes direct from my boyfriend, Stephen’s dad, Rick who is always cooking up great stuff.
Try it and trust me, you will not be disappointed!
