This is one of my recipe’s that I make each holiday season for my customers.  I bake around 150 cakes, beginning the week after Thanksgiving.

This is a easy recipe to whip up and very tasty.


  1. Beat 4 eggs in mixing bowl with electric mixer.
  2. Add water and oil; mix until blended.
  3. Add cake mix and vanilla; mix until blended.
  4. Add chopped nuts; mix.
  5. Pour 1/2 mixture into prepared pan.  Sprinkle a layer of the cinnamon-sugar mixture on layer.
  6. Top with remaining layer.
  7. Bake 325 degrees for 25- 30 minutes or until done.
  8. Mix confectioners sugar and 1-2 tsp of water until mixture is thin enough to drizzle over cooled cake.
