I use my Italian cream cheese cake recipe and substitute black walnuts instead of pecans. Delicious.

I think that Randy's produce in Millers Creek sells Watkins flavorings. I have bought black walnuts there around Christmas time.

thank you whitehawk. ahhh toasted hickory nuts....yes that would make it better....yummy. please send it to me when you get time. i appreciate it dearly. i hope you can find me a good frosting for it too. i'll check back with you on the weekend. THANKS AGAIN.

I'll look up my mother in law's black walnut cake recipe. I expect it will be toward the weekend before I can find it. I know that it has finely chopped walnuts which we always bought at Lowes. I always buy several packages of black walnut meats at Christmas and freeze them for use throughout the year. She also used black walnut or butternut flavoring from Watkins. I don't know who sells it in Wilkes but it is great. I'll try to find the address of Watkins and maybe they can tell you who sells it in the county. (Toasted hickory nuts are even better, if possible, although unless you have some frozen then you'll have to wait until late fall for them.)
