      Very tastey and moist. I took Kate's comments to heart and halved the recipe. I really enjoyed this and am planning on taking it to an upcoming potluck. Thanks for a great treat.

      On flavor and final result after tinkering, this is a definite 5 star cake. But I do think the instructions need some modification. First, I halved the recipe and still had enough batter to fill a full sized bundt pan so I think that the 9 x 12 pan specified would be much too small for the full recipe. Second, my cake was not done in 30 minutes--in fact it required almost 50 minutes of baking and still the result was a very moist cake. Finally, because of personal preference, I did not add the peanuts to the batter, but rather mixed the chopped nuts, sugar and cinnamon with a touch of boiling water and used this as a kind of glaze to drizzle over the top of the finished cake--RAVES! Two people ate it while it was still a little warm; three people later in the day--all thumbs up! Thanks, Lori!
