  1. Beat together first four ingredients. Then add eggs one at a time - ( but beat less than two minutes).
  2. Pour 1/2 batter in a 9x13 pan or Bundt pan and pour 3/4 of the filling on top. Pour remaining batter over filling. Sprinkle remaining filling on top (not too much though as the sugar can burn).
  3. Bake at 350°F for 55 minutes (usually not this long).
  4. Glaze-----Heat glaze ingredients until near boiling and glaze while cake is still warm from oven.
  5. NOTES---I have found that the glaze is hit or miss, some people like it some do not. I have started experimenting with different glazes and have found that a thicker glaze works better for my taste -- DH says it doesn't even need a glaze the cake is so good!
