"Simple and delicious. Made this as a request for a work birthday (well a crumb cake) and it was a huge hit at work. Easy recipe to make in a bind with delicious flavor."

"Delicious cake! I used a Butter Golden cake recipe and my middle layer of streusel fell to the bottom. I had read previous reviews though and baked the cake for 20 minutes before adding the top layer and had no problems with that. I doubled the glaze and added a little vanilla for a little extra flavor. I don't mind the streusel on the bottom but maybe just as an experiment next time I'll put all the batter in the pan, top with half the streusel, bake for 20 minutes and then add the rest of the topping. Any way you make it the taste combination is a winner in my book."

"Have been making this cake for 30 years. If I do use nuts, I use walnuts instead of pecans. It is always a big hit!"
