CAKE: 1 package (18.25 oz.) plain yellow cake mix 1 cup sour cream 3/4 cup vegetable oil 4 large eggs
FILLING: 1/3 cup honey 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
SUGAR GLAZE: 2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted 1/3 cup milk 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
PREHEAT oven to 350F. Lightly spray mist a 13X9-inch baking pan with cooking oil spray; set pan aside.
COMBINE cake mix, sour cream, oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute, and then increase to medium speed for 2 more minutes. The batter should look thick and well-blended; pour batter into prepared pan.
ADD THE FILLING: Drizzle the honey on top of the batter, then sprinkle on the brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans (if desired). With a knife, swirl through these ingredients to blend them slightly; place cake in oven.
BAKE the cake until it is golden brown and springs back when lightly pressed with your finger, 38-40 minutes. Remove for the oven and place on wire rack to cool while you prepare the glaze.
GLAZE: Place confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla in a small mixing bowl and stir until the mixture is well-combined. Pour the glaze over top of hot cake, using a spoon to spread it to the sides of the pan. Cool cake for 20 minutes more before cutting it into squares and serving warm.
