  • 2 cups of all- purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup of real maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter
  • 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream


  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons of butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup


  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 2-3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8X8 baking pan. In a large bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and soda, brown sugar, and walnuts. In another bowl mix together beaten eggs, syrup, butter, whipping cream, and sour cream.
  • Stir wet mixture into dry ingredients. Pour into the baking pan.
  • Mix all topping ingredients together and sprinkle over the cake.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until cake tests done. Let the cake completely cool.

You may have to add more whipping cream to the powdered sugar to get it to a pourable consistency. Remember that all oven temperatures vary so baking times may vary.
