This is a very pretty marbled cake and very easy to make. Makes a change from a straight chocolate cake for a birthday or special occasion.
It's more of cake-coffeecake, you get half-half, best of both worlds. It goes GREAT with coffee. I made it for my boyfriend's birthday at work. Some of co-workers admitted they've had FOUR servings of it. Next time I will try adding cinnamon for extra flavor kick, otherwise, it's so good the way it is! I used pecans instead of walnuts, after all I'm a Texan. - 29 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
i tried this cake hoping that it would be a great birthday cake, but it turns out to be more like a coffee cake, something you would have for breakfast, not for dessert. i was extremely dissapointed. although it was a quick and easy cake, i don't reccommend it for a dessert cake. - 25 Jun 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Everbody just loved this cake, it is so moist. It's more like a coffee cake, I guess you could drizzle it with some icing. Very good cake. - 18 Jul 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
