Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan. Blend all cake ingredients except nuts in a large bowl; beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Stir in nuts. Turn batter into pan and bake 40 to 50 minutes or until done. Cook 15 minutes in pan, then take out to finish cooling. Split cake
Mix cake mix, pudding, oil, water, and eggs; beat well. Pour into tube pan. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Mix frosting and dribble over cake as soon as you remove it from the oven. Let cook in pan and remove.
