      This tastes great and is very moist. Since I wasn't using the icing (too much sugar), I left the walnuts in large pieces and spread them on bottom of pan and poured batter over them. When cake was inverted, the walnuts were on top and made it look fancy. Served with a dollop of sugar-free nonfat vanilla yogurt.

      Fantastic recipe, and I bake a lot of lowfat stuff!! Tasted a lovely lowfat Hummingbird cake at a healthy cafe, where they had called it Sparrow Cake (!), and I wanted to duplicate it at home. Well, this recipe did it. Thanks! :)
