    Kim D.'s Note:

    My mother brought this recipe home from her Home Economic class (in the late 50's)and my Maw Maw has been making it ever since. My mom, aunts, cousins and myself all enjoy the recipe now. It's a moist cake with a delicious topping!

      This was good, I used walnuts instead of pecans. The topping was so tasty and the cake wasnt too sweet. I will make it again as my husband "don't lose this recipe."

      This was GREAT! Especially while it was still warm. The directions were perfect down to the last detail, and I will definately make this often. I will maybe add some raisens or bits of apple next time. Thanks again for a great recipe!
