I found this recipe back in the eighties from the newspaper.
My family, especially my Mother and Brother (rest their souls) said this was the best cake they have ever eaten. I swapped the English Walnuts for the Black Walnuts.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

1 pkg (3 oz) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened. 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 stick butter; 1/2 box (1lb size) confectioners sugar. Blend all ingredients until smooth.
