This is wonderful and the caramel just makes this cake into something special. I did make a few alterations - reduced the vegetable oil to one cup, added the juice of a lemon and one teaspoon of cinnamon, and I used walnuts instead of pecans as that was what I had on hand.

Delicious! Not a crumb goes to waste.

The only disappointment with this cake is that it is gone so fast! By the time I had served everyone (some coming back for another serving) I was left with one small piece. I got busy doing something else and when I came back it was gone! My little girl had eaten it. She said sorry with a huge smile! There is one thing I might try doing different next time: Pour the topping on the cake while it is still in the pan. Not sure how it will turn out, but I'm anxious to make another one anyway. Thanks!
