Top Review by chef FIFI

I needed to ammend my prior review. This was as I mentioned in my first review is a flavorful recipe. I liked the brown sugar/cinnamon top. The top does crumble a bit when I try to cut it, but to minimize that I turn it to the side and slice it. This is a dense cake, very good for breakfast,with coffee, or just a snack with a glass of milk. I did omit the nuts. I have made it 3 times this week. I just felt that my first review made it appear that it wasnt a good recipe, but my husband and neighbor loved it...Thanks for the recipe.
