For the Cake:
  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  7. 2 large eggs
  8. 1 cup buttermilk
  9. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the Nutty Filling:

  1. 1 cup mixed nuts (such as almonds, walnuts, and pecans), finely chopped
  2. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  4. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Creamy Filling:

  1. 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  2. 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  4. 1 cup heavy cream
For Garnish:
  1. Additional chopped nuts, for topping
  2. Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans, or line them with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Prepare the Cake Batter: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined. In a separate bowl, cream together the softened butter and eggs until light and fluffy. Stir in the buttermilk and vanilla extract until smooth. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  3. Make the Nutty Filling: In a small bowl, combine the finely chopped mixed nuts, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and melted butter. Mix until the nuts are evenly coated with the sugar mixture.
  4. Assemble the Cake Layers: Divide the cake batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Sprinkle the nutty filling mixture evenly over the batter in each pan, spreading it out gently with a spatula to ensure even distribution.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Place the cake pans in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. Remove the pans from the oven and let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
  6. Prepare the Creamy Filling: In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until well combined.
  7. Assemble the Cake: Once the cake layers have cooled completely, place one layer on a serving platter or cake stand. Spread a generous layer of the creamy filling over the top of the cake layer. Carefully place the second cake layer on top and press down gently to secure it in place.
  8. Finish with Garnishes: Garnish the top of the cake with additional chopped nuts, if desired. Dust with powdered sugar for a touch of elegance.
  9. Chill and Serve: For best results, refrigerate the assembled cake for at least 1 hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld and the filling to set. Slice and serve this decadent Nutty Vanilla Cake with Creamy Filling, and watch as it disappears within moments, leaving behind only smiles and satisfied sighs.
