Although this was easy to make, I just didn't think it was anything special.

I thought this was very good. I did not make the topping because I did not have the sour cream. For that reason, I added about 1/3 cup more sugar to the cake. I also found it cooked in about 20 minutes as opposed to the stated 40-45. It makes a big moist cake. Thanks for the post.

Delicious cake! This was so moist and rich. I just made it and served it warm and my bh loves this cake too. I added more walnuts because we love them. The icing takes a while to make due to all off the stirring before it finally comes to a boil but it is worth it. It really is an easy cake to make though. This is a keeper. Thank you very much for posting it.
