This is a quick and easy way to turn a regular cake mix into something special. We serve this with eggs and bacon on a Sunday morning!

I just finished making this cake and it is sitting in the fridge to cool. This was one of the easiest and most moist cake I have eaten (I cut myself a slice before sticking it in the fridge). I did have to bake it for 60 mins as it was still too jiggly after 45mins. I didn't use the glaze in the recipe but made by own by cooking: 1 cup cream, 1 cup brown sugar and 2 tbsp butter on the stove and pouring it on the hot cake and sprinkling walnuts over it....it is very pretty and definitely will be making it again in the future...thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  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!
