2 c. pastry flour or 1 2/3 c. of all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. cooking oil
5 egg yolks
3/4 c. lukewarm water
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp maple flavouring
1/2 c. walnuts (finely chopped)
1 c. egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar

1/4 c. butter
3 c. sifted icing sugar
2 egg yolks
3 tbsp cream or canned milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp maple flavouring

Measure the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in to a sifter and sift in to mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add oil, egg yolks, lukewarm water, vanilla and maple flavouring. Using a wooden spoon stir until smooth, and add the very finely chopped walnuts. Measure egg whites in to large bowl, sprinkle with cream of tartar and beat until very very stiff. Be sure to beat them well. Add egg yolk mixture to egg whites and 1/4 at a time and fold gently to combine. Turn in to ungreased tube pan about 10 x 4, cut through batter once or twice with a knife to cut air bubbles. Bake at 325 for about 1 1/4 hours. Test for doneness by lightly touching the top of the cake with your finger and if the cake springs back it is done. Hang the cake upside down until cool. Gently insert a knife along the side of the cake and work around the cake until loose.
For the icing, cream the butter well. Gradually add the icing sugar to blend in about 1 cup to the butter, add egg yolks and beat thoroughly. Add the remaining sugar gradually, alternating with cream. Beat in the vanilla and maple flavouring. Mix until smooth and spread on cake.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
As a modern alternative, use a prepared chiffon cake mix, add maple flavouring and walnuts. Cook as directed on the box. Use a commercially available vanilla icing and blend in maple flavouring.
