Preparation Time: 15 mins

Cook: 40 mins

Additional: 30 mins 

Servings: 16


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (8 ounce) carton sour cream
  • 3/4  cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4  cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 1.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch cake pan.

Step 2.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the cake mix, eggs, sour cream, vegetable oil, and water to make a smooth batter. In a separate bowl, stir together the brown sugar with cinnamon. Pour half the cake batter into the prepared baking pan, and sprinkle the brown sugar-cinnamon mixture over the batter. Pour the remaining batter over the cinnamon mixture, and gently swirl the batter a few times with a table knife.

Step 3.
Bake the cake in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes.

Step 4.
Stir the confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla extract together in a bowl to make a smooth, runny icing. Pour the icing over the cake while it’s still hot; allow to cool before serving.
