    This was so good. I didn't have a tube pan so I used a 9x13 inch pan and reduced the cooking time. My husband took the rest to work and it was gone in no time.  -  28 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I added 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoons ground cloves and 3/4 teaspoons ground allspice. I also sprinkled additional walnuts on top before baking. Awesome!  -  20 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
