Step 1

Preheat oven to 325. Prepare 9 x 13 pan.

In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil, and sour cream. Stir by hand until large lumps are gone. There will still be some lumps but that's ok.

Pour half the batter into the pan.

Now, in a medium bowl. Take your brown sugar and cinnamon and combine.
Mix up your brown sugar and cinnamon really well.

Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture all over the batter in the cake pan.

Now carefully spread the other half of the batter on top.

Don't be afraid, it's gonna get really uncomfortable.

All the batter and stuff is gonna get all mixed together and you're gonna think you are doing it all wrong.

But don't worry how it looks. Trust me.

Once it's all spread around, take a butter knife and twirl it all through the batter, so it gets all swirly and stuff.

Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Just when it's about done baking, mix together your powdered sugar, vanilla and milk.

I always use a fork to be sure all the little clumps get broken up

Once the cake comes out of the oven, waste no time at all.

Pour this powdered sugar mixture over the warm cake.

Now sit back and wait for the wonderful crackle to appear
