Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter
and flour a 13 x 9 baking pan. In a bowl combine the walnuts,
cinnamon, cloves, breadcrumbs, flour, and baking powder. In a
small glass, dilute the soda with the cognac. In a large bowl
of a mixer, cream the butter with the sugar and then add the
eggs. Mix in the soda with cognac, and add the milk and the
walnut mixture, beating until well combined. Spread into the
prepared baking pan. Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until the
center is firm.
Prepare the syrup by mixing all the ingredients together in a
medium sauce pan. Bring it to a boil and pour it over the
baked cake. Let the cake cool completely before serving.
