Special Touch
Add a handful of chocolate chips or butterscotch chips to the topping for a decadent finish.
Substitution
For the cake, you can use 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened, instead of the shortening.
Success
If you're chopping nuts in a food processor, use quick pulses to avoid an oily mess. Go ahead and chop more nuts than you need. Wrap and freeze the extra nuts to use later.
Variation
You can also bake this most-requested cake in a 9-inch square pan for 25 to 30 minutes.
