  • 1 package butter cake mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans chopped


  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar sifted
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons pecans chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 10 cup bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Remove 2 Tablespoons of cake mix to a small bowl and reserve set aside.
  • In a large bowl beat together the remaining cake mix, sour cream, oil, water, eggs, sugar, and vanilla, using a handheld electric mixer, for 2 minutes on high. 
  • Mix together 2 tablespoons of reserved cake mix, brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans; set aside.
  • Pour about 3/4 of batter into the prepared pan and then sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture in the center of the batter. Spoon the remaining batter over the cinnamon-sugar layer and spread evenly. 
  • Bake 45-55 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool for 25 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely on a wire baking rack.


  • In a medium bowl, whisk powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of milk until smooth. If necessary, add more milk, very slowly so it doesn't get too thin, until desired consistency is achieved. 
  • Drizzle glaze over the cake. Sprinkle top with 2 tablespoons chopped pecans and serve.
