Gram’s Best Brown Sugar Cake

This is not my gram’s cake recipe, I think this is a Kraft recipe but I can’t remember where I got it from so I’m not sure.  It is so delicious!  Try it, try it right now!  🙂

1 (2 layer size) package yellow cake mix

1 (3.4 oz) package vanilla flavor instant pudding

4 eggs

2/3 cup sour cream

2/3 cup water

1/2 cup oil

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup chopped pecans (I didn’t have any pecans so left them out)

2 teaspoons powdered sugar (I used my favorite vanilla buttercream frosting instead of sprinkling with the powdered sugar but the cake is so delicious that it really doesn’t need frosting)

1  Heat oven to 350.

2  Beat first 6 ingredients 3 minutes or until well blended.  Add brown sugar and nuts and mix well.

3  Pour into 12 cup fluted tube pan or 10″ tube pan sprayed with cooking spray.  (I baked in two 8″ round pans.)

4  Bake 1 hour or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.  Cool cake in pan 15 minutes.  Loosen cake from sides of pan and cool completely.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.

Special Extra:  Sprinkle pan with combined 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon after spraying with cooking spray.
