Liverpool's Walkden saw off Ivanova in the +73kg category in Baku.
The 22-year-old won 6-2 and is now eyeing an assault on the 2016 Olympics.
"It's amazing to be European champion," said the number three seed.
"I could always win Open events. I reckon it's 16 and counting. However, I could never do it at a major. Until now.
"And because I've beaten the world number one in the final, comfortably, I am buzzing.
"Hopefully, I can get a lot more gold medals at a major but it's step by step.
"I want to take all this in and then start collecting enough ranking points to get to Rio 2016. I want to have another gold medal around my neck in two years' time."
