Walnut loaf cake with cinnamon walnut butter

"Walnuts do double duty in this simple, not too sweet cake with a cozy cinnamon and honey spiked butter for serving. If you don’t have a good way to make espresso at home, use 1 tbsp instant coffee and 3 tbsp hot water in lieu of it—but make sure to let it cool before adding to the cake batter. Wrapped up tightly in plastic wrap, the cake will last for 3 days at room temperature, but is best served warm. The butter is as good with the walnuts as without."
