    I just made this today. I haven't seen this recipe in years and searched for it. It was just as yummy as it was years ago. My daughter and I had a piece right out of the oven...sooo good!!

    This was a hit at the party I took it to. Everyone loved it. I received so many compliments!!! I followed the recipe to the "T". So easy! I just added extra walnuts! The presentation looked beautiful too. I made it using the fluted tube cake pan.
