      Better than Robert Redford? I think not. This didn't seem like a cake to me at all and with all the mixes it's full of chemicals and additives. Robert Redford's a natural. This recipe was a disaster. Even my seven year old didn't like it.

      This is a great recipe. I use pecans instead and usually just mix the the flour and nuts in the baking dish and then pour the melted butter over the top, mixing and pressing into the pan. My grandmother and mother made this recipe when I was young and now when I make it, my children go crazy over it. Thanks for posting this!

      I am so glad you posted this! I've been looking for this recipe. My mom used to make this for special events and potluck dinners. We love this recipe! Best when left to set overnight. I have made this ligher by using Neufchatel (light cream cheese), Fat Free frozen whipped topping, sugar free puddings, and light margarine. You can also reduce the amount of walnuts in the base, or make a graham-cracker crust instead.
