1 tsp salt
4 tsp ground cinnamon

Bake 45-50 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pans and then remove complete. When Completely cooled, frost with cream cheese frosting. Top with walnuts.

Please toothpick test the cakes!!! Mine was SO underdone, despite coooking it for about an hour and fifteen minutes and it feeling done.

Cream cheese Frosting:
16 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup softened butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

In a medium bowl, cream together cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in the vanilla and then slowly add the powdered sugar. Store in the frige until ready to use. You could probably increase this by half to make the cake really good. I was afraid I was going to run out so my middle layer was spare and the sides weren't completely done.

Frost the cake with the cream cheese and top with walnuts
