Melinda Maple Nut Cake

A good friend of mine made this cake especially for me knowing that being Quebecoise is loving the essence of maple syrup. She knew I love maple syrup. I was very astounded and delighted with the results.

    Cool about 15 minutes and remove form the pan and cool it about 2 hours.,
  3. In a large bowl beat powdered sugar, butter, cream cheese and syrup with an electric mixer.
    Beat in enough of the remaining syrup to make a smooth soft frosting that flows down the sides of the cake. Glaze the cake. Melinda would always comment to me "Francine you always could use more Bourbon than syrup...(ha ha) Take a swig!
  4. Note that Melinda does not use real maple syrup because the flavor of the imitation maple syrup is more intense.
