    I used butter instead of shortening. The ingredients list should include additional 1/4 cup of walnuts. I made the topping and placed it on top of the cake prior to baking. The cake tasted wonderful.  -  26 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is just an OK cake. I followed the recipe exactly, did not change a thing. But although I enjoyed the taste of the cake, did not like the texture. It was so dense, not a light moist cake at all. Hopefully it will taste a little better in the morning! Just did not wow me!  -  14 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this for the photo contest and was amazed by how good it was. The cinnamon sugar topping made the cake. It was great warm or cold and will be perfect around the holidays.  -  17 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
