This recipe was passed around at work. I tried it and am glad I did.I found a similar recipe here but this one has nuts. It calls for a 17 oz. pound cake mix but I could only find a 16 oz. and that worked out fine.

1/2 cup melted butter
4 eggs
1 - 8 oz.pkg. of cream cheese ( room tempurature)

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine cake mix, melted butter and 2 eggs until well blended. Beat one minute. Spread in a greased 13 x 9 x 2 pan.
Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in remaining 2 eggs and vanilla. Measure from box and set aside 1/2 cup powdered sugar; beat remaining sugar into cream cheese mixture. Pour evenly and gently over cake batter. ( I used a rubber spatula to do this) Sprinkle with nuts.
Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 40 - 45 minutes until cake is golden brown on top.
Cool several hours . Sprinkle with some of the remaining powdered sugar. Cut and serve after completely cooled.
