1 tsp. vanilla extract

Cinnamon mixture:

1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts

3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
5 Tbsp. water

Preheat oven to 350. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, water, eggs, oil and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour 1/3 batter into greased and floured tube pan. Sprinkle 1/2 cinnamon mixture over batter then add remaining batter and then rest of cinnamon mixture. Bake for 45-50 minutes. When cake is done, pour topping over it and let it cool (the topping seeps into the cake--yum!)
