Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cake

Courtesy of Susan Gilliland




1 box yellow cake mix

1/2 c sugar

3/4 c veg oil

8 oz. sour cream*

4 eggs

1 cup brown sugar

4 tsp. cinnamon



1/3 box confectionerÕs sugar

4 tablespoons melted butter/margarine


Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.  Grease and flour a 9x13 pan (I use glass).


For the cake:

Mix first 3 ingredients thoroughly.  Next, add sour cream.

Add eggs one at a time.


Pour mixture into prepared pan


Next, mix brown sugar and cinnamon.  Spread this over top of unbaked cake and swirl into batter.


Bake cake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 45-60 min. My notes say 45-60, but my cake usually takes 55-60 minutes.


For the icing:

Mix powdered sugar and melted butter.  Whisk together until combined and thin with water if too thick.


Drizzle over warm cake and enjoy!


*I use light sour cream, but plain yogurt could be substituted as well for a healthier spin.
