Yum! I threw this together this morning for breakfast and was blown away at the ease of preparation and taste and texture of the finished cake. I was very surprised at how high the cake baked up! It was moist and flavorful with just the right amount of crunchy sweetness on top and buried within. Thanks! (I had to sub almonds for walnuts and 1 tsp almond extract instead of 1 tsp of vanilla.)

Very nice...I used this for a catering job and received lots of compliments. I added cinnamon to the batter for an extra cinnamon kick! Thanks MizzNezz... :)
