    This most delicious recipe is straight off the back of the Duncan Hines cake mix box, but any good cake mix will do.

      I love this cake and was raised on it. It's so easy! Here's what my mom did that makes it even quicker and not quite so sweet. (At least the glaze part.) For the filling: Get rid of the nuts and cake mix and use 3 T of brown sugar and 1 T of cinnamon. When the cake is ready to go into the oven, take a knife and cut the cake batter up and down all the way around the bundt pan. This makes the filling swirl just a bit and keeps the cake from falling apart at the filling line. For the glaze: Just sift powdered sugar over the top.

      This was my grandmother's recipe as well. Well, she got it from a friend. And we always call it "Mrs. Harris' cake"!
      I use 1/2 cup vegetable oil and add vanilla. I also do not use cinnamon.
      For variety, I also use a sour cream topping - sr cream, sugar, vanilla and add just to the top.

      I sell this cake at my job because my coworker's enjoy so much. I will say that I have embellished this recipe by adding more sugar and vanilla flavoring and it comes out even better.
