Made this cake yesterday, and it is fabulous! Husband ate 2 huge servings! Only subs I made were toasted walnuts (heart healthy) instead of pecans and plain nonfat yogurt instead of fat and calorie laden sour cream. Cake was very moist, flavorful, and simply delicious! I will not feel guilty eating it with these healthy changes.



I used all the other recommendations from the other reviews and this cake came out perfect! I made it for a family get together and now it is requested for every one. I added slightly more sour cream; little bit less baking time (40 min); more filling and more layers of that filling; swirl the filling with the batter at ea. layer; almond extract in cake and glaze; dust pan with cinnamon and sugar



This cake was delicious and very moist. I made extra cinnamon and brown sugar topping and layered the top of bundt cake with it. My husband ate almost the whole cake by himself.
