Wow! This sucker is sweet!!! All that icing may be gilding the lily a bit--next time, I might make a small amount of glaze and just drizzle over the top.

This is an easy, delicious cake! I love that it starts with cake mix - makes it nice and fast to put together. It tastes so good! I sometimes add chopped walnuts or pecans to the brown sugar - cinnamon mixture.

Delish. I'll use less cinnamon next time, though.

This cake was so easy to make, and it comes out like a professional made it! I took one to a friend's birthday party and it was a HIT! I would have this cake for my birthday cake, anyday!!! So moist and sweet. I love it!

This was excellent. Super quick to make and very moist. Only change I made was using butter instead of canola oil. It is so sweet it is more like a dessert than a breakfast.

I made this for a mother's day brunch and it got great reviews! I also cut the glaze amount in half. I thought the cake was sweet enough without it. I found spreading the top layer of cake mixture a little tricky but it didn't really matter if a little brown sugar got into the cake anyway. Very delicious!

This is always my go to recipe when my daughter comes home from college. I used to make it for her when she was in high school and she would take it to her friends. The cake is very moist. I think it is the best coffee cake around. I cut the glaze recipe in half. There is enough to drizzle on the cake.
