My Grandmother gave me this recipe many years ago.Sometimes I double the nut topping and sprinkle it in the batter to make a filling.Just pour half the batter in the pan,sprinkle the topping then pour the remaining batter on top.
It's nice to make it the night before and bake it fresh the next morning.
