In the cake I used only 1/2 cup sugar. For the topping I used only 1/4 cup of walnuts. For the sauce, I used maybe just 1/4 cup butter. It was perfect. This cake is so good. And very easy to do. Thanks Deb :) Made for PRMR tag game
This is a wonderful cake! Easy to make, rich, moist and delicious. I made half of the recipe with good results. Loved this - thanks for posting the recipe!
This cake was delicious!! The topping was great. It tasted like the candied nuts that you can buy from vendors. Very moist and a little bit chewy but definitely worth making again. Thanks for a great and easy recipe! Made for the PRMR Tag Game.
