  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Mix 3 cups flour, milk, white sugar, eggs, baking powder, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and salt together in a large bowl until well-combined. Stir in 1/4 cup melted butter. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.
  3. Beat 1 cup softened butter, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon together in a large bowl until smooth. Drop by spoonfuls over the batter in the baking pan. Swirl the top layer into the bottom layer with a knife to create a marble effect.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out nearly clean, 25 to 30 minutes.
  5. Mix confectioners' sugar, milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a large bowl until smooth. Drizzle over warm cake.

I too used a yellow box mix. The reason was that in the ingredients this calls for 3 C. flour and in the actual directions it says use 2 C., I wasn't sure so used the box mix. I made the cinnamo...

Very good. Just made this and the 3 cups of flour is the correct measurement.

The taste to this was incredible - My whole family loved it! I used a 13 x 9 pan (not a bundt) The butter, cinnamon mix you swirl into the cake made a lot, probably could cut back on the butter...

I made it just as the recipe says except changed the vanilla to orange extract. VERY yummy thank you for a great recipe!

Cake was delicious, took a bit longer to cook but well worth it. Made it exactly as listed.

Taste is awesome, however the cinnamon filling was too heavy to "swirl" into the mix. Next time I'll add a touch of cream or milk to liquify. Other than that a family hit!

for the brown sugary swirl stuff I only use 1 stick butter not one cup and it's plenty!
