  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and bake at 275 degrees for 60-75 minutes until done.
  8. When done, remove the cake from the oven, cover with foil, and place directly into the freezer for 1 hour.
  9. While the cake is cooling, make the frosting. Cream the cream cheese with the butter, salt, and vanilla. Mix in the powdered sugar and beat until fluffy.
  10. Spread the frosting over the cooled cake. Cut into squares and serve!
