Grandma's Recipe Box: #7 Maple Iced Pound Cake

 

This is one of my favorites from Grandma's box - Maple Iced Pound Cake. 

The recipe begins with a "Box of Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix," but does not follow the indications on the box.  The tweaking yields a much denser, more flavorful, and very moist variation of the typical yellow cake, in other words, a "pound cake." 

The frosting is my favorite part of this dessert.    Make sure to lay the frosting on real thick, at least 1/2 inch. 

Then, top the frosting with chopped walnuts, and refrigerate to allow the frosting to firm up a bit.
