Walnut Cream Sauce

  • 3/4 cup Walnuts
  • 1/2 cup milk (1 % dairy or plain unsweetened almond are the only 2 I have tried)
  • 1/2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  • food processor

Prep:: None :: Yield:: About 1 cup of Sauce

  1. Place walnuts in a food processor (mine is a 4-cup Cuisinart processor which I use all the time and LOVE) & pulse until finely chopped
  2. Add milk, syrup, and vanilla
  3. Pulse until smooth (sauce will be slightly chunky, but I love it due to the nutty taste I get from the little chunks of walnuts)
  4. Store in refrigerator for 4-5 days

the cake reheats well in the microwave and tastes delicious with the chilled Walnut Sauce // Add Berries or Bananas (or Both!) for an extra delicious treat // I also served it with a few chocolate covered coffee beans, yum! // Cake Recipe Source:Here Thanks Shanna Hillman! // I modified the Dairy Free Version (Similar taste to my homemade brownies!) // Walnut Sauce Source: Yours truly!
