I got this recipe from my good friend, Vera, about 4 years ago and I've been making it ever. I've passed on this recipe to friends many times. Hope you will try it and enjoy it as much as my family does.

This is a great recipe, the people at work quite enjoyed it. I also made the cake with apples and added the usual accompanying spices. I also found the topping to be too wet so I used half the suggested amount of butter the second time around and I still found it a little too wet. But no matter how much butter you use, it still is a terrific recipe.
