Cake, it's not just for dessert anymore! What a way to start the day! Scrumptious cake! I had one box of white cake mix left (that's what happens when you live in the Third World, not enough cake mix), and I was happy, ecstatic, to sacrifice it for this recipe. The nuts and the brown sugar really make this special! Now, if anyone can get me some more Duncan Heines white cake mix, I will certainly make this again and again!

My family loved this!!! I was a little afraid cuz the size of cake mixes are now smaller than they used to be. I saved out a little less than one cup of the mix to accomodate.
