This was great because I wanted to make something, and it used standard pantry ingredients. However I was out of walnuts, so I used pecans instead, and I don't think I'd have wanted it any other way! It was great. Since the recipe doesn't specify, I also used half light brown sugar, half dark brown. To make it healthier, I used 1/2 cup apple sauce (one of the ones you'd put in a lunch) instead of butter in the batter, and I used 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. I baked in an 8x8 dish for 40 minutes. I can't imagine having tried a larger dish, as it was I needed to coax it to the sides for each layer. It was about the perfect amount for my pan. We couldn't wait for it to cool completely, and it was amazing warm. I've had a piece since and moisture was fine. A tad dry only on the cut side, since that was exposed to the air. Still used butter in the topping - which makes way too much, I used about 2/3 of it. Definitely recommend the recipe!
