Preheat oven to 350*. Spray tube pan or bundt pan with cooking spray (I prefer Baker's Joy).
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding, sour cream, eggs, oil, and water until combined.
In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon.
Place about 3/4 of the cake batter into the pan.
Sprinkle brown sugar mix evenly over the batter.
Dollop remaining 1/4 of batter on top of brown sugar mixture.
Using a butter knife, lightly cut through the batter in a side to side motion (this is swirling the brown sugar) - dont over do it.
Tap pan on the counter a few times to get the batter to even out.
Bake for 1 hour.
Cool for 10 minutes; invert onto cake platter or serving dish.
Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
