  • 1 pkg yellow or white cake mix
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 8 ounces sour cream or 1 c buttermilk, I've used both and you can't tell the difference.
  • 1 cup pecans chopped, optional
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 Tablespoons milk more if needed


  • Mix cake mix, oil, eggs and sour cream (or buttermilk). Stir in nuts. Spoon ½ batter into 9 x 13 inch pan. Add brown sugar and cinnamon to remaining batter; mix well. Spoon over batter in pan. Bake at 350 degrees 30 to 35 min; cool.
  • Combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Add more milk if necessary to make glaze pourable. Spread over cooled cake.
