This is a great way to make a nut cake. At the end the nut/sugar/milk topping is browned under the grill. It's great served hot or cold.
WOW!! After reading a couple reviews, I too, put less sugar (1/2 c white, 1/2 c brown in batter, and only 1 c. brown in icing) and it gets more fabulous everytime I eat another piece!! Very moist, not too sweet but definately satisfies the sweet tooth. I also omitted the nuts but am going to try pecans next time. I've tried a lot of recipes on this site and don't leave reviews often but this one deserves the praise and I highly recommend it! - 05 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This cake is out of this world . Too bad there isn't a 10 star rating because it deserves it .. I made tis cake 2 weeks ago and have made it 4 time sence then . People were hunting me down to get the recipe ( at a funeral no less ), so print out extra copies to take with you because your gonna need'em . HEAVENY , HEAVENLY . This is a man catching cake and a women ego lifting cake . DDO NOT USE INSTANT NOR QUICK COOKING OATES, USE THE OLD FASHION HAVE TO COOK 5 MINUTES KIND. - 20 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Wonderfully moist and delicious. I made two small cakes instead of one large one, and froze one for later. It is especially wonderful when warm, or re-heated. - 29 Nov 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
