Add the sliced nuts and flour, beating lightly until thoroughly mixed. Pour the batter into a greased pan, sprinkle sugar over the top and bake at 350 f until brown. Allow the cake to cool in pan before cutting in slices. Source: Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book - Fine Old Recipes, Culinary Arts Press, 1936.
