I got this recipe from a lady in our church. She made this for me after I had my little girl. This was back in 1990 and after all these years this is still one of my favorites.

I like this recipe much better than the one on Duncan Hines Butter recipe cake mix. The two things I do differently is that I add 2 tsp of cinnamon with the brown sugar and I use 1 cup of nuts and add vanilla flavoring and then you end up with the perfect cake.
