A nice quick to put together cake. And the topping was easy to make, I like that! I did add a 1/4 teaspoon of cloves to the cake recipe to kick it up a notch.

Delicious cake! The only thing I changed was that after the cake was done cooking, I cooled it a bit and then turned it out onto a cookie sheet and then proceeded with the topping under the broiler. Wonderful results! Everyone raved!

Okay, so I've made this cake a few times. I love it ! It's very moist and tender. The first time I made it was for a friend who wanted a spice cake with caramel frosting; So I didn't use the topping that time. The next time I made it as written. The topping is very tasty, Though I don't prefer it on the cake. The cake is also wonderful by itself! Thanks so much. I'm in love with this cake.
