It took me two attempts to make this; the first try I made half the recipe and it overflowed the cake pan. So on the second attempt I also made half the recipe and baked it in a 11x13 pyrex pan. Made also minus the nuts since made for a brunch and someone is allergic. This was very good. Moist and cinnamon-y and the glaze was not too sweet. Made for 2012 Spring PAC.
