I had this once on a stop in Georgia & fell in love with it... it was so comforting I just loved it! I made it one time nut-free by substituting white chocolate chips instead of nuts for a friend with a nut allergy - I served it as Christmas Cake for her Holiday Party & I loved it even more that way - it was sweet & decadent! I'm posting the traditional recipe though, but at least you see that substitutions are not always a bad thing :-)
