  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch cake pan.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the cake mix, buttermilk, eggs, baking soda, and vegetable oil until thoroughly combined. In a separate bowl, stir the brown sugar and cinnamon together. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan, and spoon the cinnamon sugar onto the batter in several places. Using the spoon, gently swirl the cinnamon sugar into the cake batter, leaving streaks and ribbons of sugar mixture (do not overmix).
  3. Bake cake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove cake from oven, and punch holes all over the cake with a table knife.
  4. Whisk milk, vanilla extract, and confectioners' sugar together in a bowl to form a smooth, runny icing; pour the icing all over the cake, allowing it to soak into the holes. Allow cake to cool before serving.



Very tasty.. I thought it tasted like a cinnabon cake I had years ago..

In the oven right now! Like the fact that you can easily "make" your own "buttermilk". Smells great but I guess the "proof will be in the pudding".

You have to have a super sweet tooth to enjoy this one. I liked it, but I would probably cut the glaze in half. My cake mix was only a 15 ounce, so maybe that had something to do with it, too....

This cake was Awesome!!! My husband did not want to share this cake with anyone. Don't expect this cake to hang around, long. If you like nuts, add some to it, I did. Charlotte Johnson Atlant...

A little too sweet but good cake overall
