Recipe for "Sock it to me Cake"

One Box Duncan Hines Golden Butter Cake Mix
(I've made it with other brands and they work fine)
One Cup Sour Cream
1/3 cup Crisco Oil ( I use canola, any oil will do)
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Water
4 eggs
(cake rises better when the whites are beaten separate and folded in the mix)

Reserve 2 tablespoons of cake mix, to mix with
2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1 cup chopped pecans (or chopped walnuts)
2 tablespoons of brown sugar (or plain sugar)

grease one large bundt pan

Pour a portion of mix into pan, add nut mix, add rest of cake mix...then give a litte stir around the pan to "design" the nuts within..

Bake in 350 oven 1 hour (give a dry skewer test, to make sure it's done)

Glaze: (optional)
Mix 2 tablespoons milk with 1 cup confectionery sugar
Hope you enjoy it!

It's an old recipe, but still a goody, and guaranteed to please more than a few ...If you make it once ..you'll be making it twice.
