Effie's Maple Walnut

This recipe merely says Maple Walnut, however, I believe this is a cake and should be treated as such. Aunt Effie loved anything maple. This is written out exactly as it appeared in her cook book.

Effie's Maple Walnut
(As written in one of Aunt Effie's cook books)

Cream 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter; add yolks of 2 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1 1/2 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla, salt and 1 cup nuts. Last, 2 egg whites beaten stiff.

*As a cake, genbtly fold in the egg whites at the end.
*Bake in a greased pan or pans at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, then check for doneness with a toothpick.
*You can make your own icing from brown sugar, powdered sugar, milk, butter, and vanilla or use a canned white icing.
