    We found this cake to be very tasty and moist. However, I used a 9×5 loaf pan and baked as directed, but the cake was not done in the 30-40 minutes described in the recipe. It took 60 minutes to bake, but the results were outstanding.

    Substituted Quaker Oats for the nuts in the topping…excellent!

    I used unsalted butter instead of margarine and I used a regular loaf pan instead of a large one. I was a little concerned because it took longer to bake but it worked out fine. The cake was very moist and flavorful.
