  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly oil a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Combine cake mix, sour cream, eggs, and oil in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer for 3 minutes. Pour half of the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  3. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Sprinkle over batter in the pan. Carefully pour the remainder of the batter over the cinnamon-sugar layer.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.
  5. Mix confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla together in a bowl. Poke holes in the hot cake with a fork and pour sugar mixture over the top of the cake. Let cake cool completely before serving, about 30 minutes.

No changes and it was Great!

Where did I go wrong??? Made according to directions and I think it could be good if you left off the glaze. It saturated the cake and turned most of it to mush. Really disappointed.

Whew! This is a sweet moist cake! I would try next time making half of the sugar mixture you poke into the cake. It has great flavors with the brown sugar and cinnamon in the cake. It even looks...

Deliciously decadent! Great to bring to brunch gatherings. Never had a complaint just request for the recipe. For the icing, I used almond milk in lieu of milk and added a bit of vanilla paste.

I just increased for 100+. Turned out great

My family loved this cake. It disappeared in 1 day! Didn't make any changes!

Sorry but just tasted like a sugar bomb. Made it as written but definitely won't make it again. Gummy and waaay too sweet...and I'm a sweet freak.

Did not make any changes. It was delicious just the way it was

Pretty good, I only used 2 cups of sugar in the glaze, it was more than enough. Most important, easy to make.
