It was good, however it didn't taste like the Sara Lee cake at all to me.

Very buttery and delicious! The cinnamon swirl added a nice contrast.

This has always been a family favorite! I add 1/2 cup chopped pecans to the cinnamon and sugar mixture. It makes a lot, so it is also good to take portions, freeze, and warm in the microwave for continued enjoyment!

I followed the recipe exactly, and it was incredibly delicious! The only thing I might add next time are some pecans to the top.
