  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ¾ cups vegetable oil
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4-6 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp honey optional


  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • In a medium bowl stir together the cake mix, eggs, sour cream, and oil and mix until well-incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon until well-blended; set aside.
  • Pour half of the cake batter into a greased 13×9 pan, spreading it out evenly.
  • Add all of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture to the top, covering the entire layer of batter.
  • Pour the rest of the cake batter on top, and spread the batter out as evenly as possible.
  • Place the cake into the oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • While the cake is baking, make the glaze.
  • In a bowl, mix the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until glaze is smooth.
  • When the cake comes out of the oven, immediately pour glaze onto the hot cake.
  • Spread it out evenly.



Let the cake sit for a few minutes so the glaze can set and serve warm or at room temperature.
