      This cake is the best cake I have ever made and eaten! It is so moist, tasty and absolutely scrumptious!!!!! My sister requested it for her birthday and she wasnt dissapointed. Everybody who tried it loved it! I highly recommend you try it. I did substitute half the flour with wholemeal flour and the pecan nuts were a great addition. I look forward to making this cake again very soon.

      This is a terrific cake - moist and full of flavor, even without the nuts. For the topping, I eliminate the milk, spread the topping over the cake hot from the oven, then BROIL the cake for just a few minutes to brown.

      Although I have not made this cake, I often use an almost identical recipe which is fabulous. The only difference is I don't add the salt and I never use nuts. It is a wonderful moist sweet cake. I have made the topping here which works well. I also make a version with white sugar, another 2 Tbsp of milk and 2 cups cocunut. Beware that you will have a lot more mixture. For some reason, my topping only about 10 minutes of cooking.
