Walnut and Honey Cake

I first saw this cake Martha Stewart site ages ago and have been making it often, the cake originally is made with all maida and since I have been making it so often I tried replacing 50% maida with whole wheat and was happy with the results and then I tried replacing 100% maida with 100% whole wheat, made a few more additions to the cake in terms of moisture and here is a winner of a cake.

No fat, no processed flour, no processed sugar yet delicious warm and moist cake. Try it and you can come back to thank me or for more recipes :)
