Used to make this when I had people over and it was always a big hit. This recipe is very old and comes from my very first cook book (Pillsbury) which was a gift from my grandmother. Best served the day it is made.

In the cake I used only 1/2 cup sugar. For the topping I used only 1/4 cup of walnuts. For the sauce, I used maybe just 1/4 cup butter. It was perfect. This cake is so good. And very easy to do. Thanks Deb :) Made for PRMR tag game

This cake was delicious!! The topping was great. It tasted like the candied nuts that you can buy from vendors. Very moist and a little bit chewy but definitely worth making again. Thanks for a great and easy recipe! Made for the PRMR Tag Game.
