Yum! Made this for breakfast yesterday and it was wonderful! It was moist and delicious. Made as written, except we didn't have walnuts so I used pecans instead and we only had light sour cream. Used 1/2 cup pecans, 3 tablespoons butter and 3 heaped teaspoons cinnamon in the topping. The apple was a Fuji. Baked in 8x8 pan for 30 min. Thanks for a great, quick recipe!
I substituted the shortening with canola oil and it worked out just fine! You might want to make a revision on the instructions because you left out the addition of the egg and vanilla, but I put them in after creaming the sugar and oil and before adding the flour. =D This cake was delicious and not overly sweet, which we love in our coffee cakes! I give this recipe an A+, definately a keeper.
