Outstanding! Great texture (similar to coffee cake texture). Tasted similar to pineapple upside down cake but much better.

This was a big hit! It's very moist and great warm or cold. I reduced the brown sugar to one quarter cup and didn't add the nuts. Contrary to the instructions I did butter the pan. Thanks fo...
