I love this cake because it’s a simple recipe, basically, no fail. Mix up the five-ingredient batter, dump it into the prepared pan, put the brown sugar and nuts over that, and bake at 325 F for 40 minutes.
Once it’s done baking and still hot, spread on the icing, that is seriously all there is to it!
