My Meatless Mondays - Cranberry Nut Coffee Cake

This is a muffin recipe from that I baked in a square pan and made into a cake.  I made my own topping for this cake. My husband's evaluation: "Don't lose that recipe."  His usual response, "It is good."

Cranberry Nut Muffin Cake
1/2 cup oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
2 cups gluten-free flour mixture
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup cup dried cranberry-raisins Craisins

1/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped
1 teaspoon canola oil (more if necessary)
2 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees  Grease an 8 inch square pan.
In a mixing bowl, beat oil and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Fold in sour cream. 
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and salt; stir into the creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in cranberries. 
Pour into 8 inch square pan.
Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over cake.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 30 - 35 minutes or until cake tests done. 
Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove to a wire rack.  

This is one of those days.  I had completed My Meatless Mondays and all that information disappeared.  I hope I can re-create it here.  Bear with me, please.
