  6. Swirl cake around with a knife.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes until golden brown.

CINNAMON WHIPPED CREAM

This recipe doubles the walnuts that most dump cakes require. If preferred, you can use only 1 cup on top, but the more the better!

Store leftover cake and whipped cream in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
