Directions

  2. Spoon half of the batter into a greased 10-in. tube pan. Combine the filling ingredients; sprinkle half over batter. Carefully spread remaining batter over the top; sprinkle with remaining filling. Cut through with a knife to swirl.
  3. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Combine glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over cake. Yield: 12-16 servings.
