Fudgy-Nut Bundt cake recipe


2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 package chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1-1/4 tsp. cinnamon
3 eggs
3/4 cup chopped nuts
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup water

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan. Mix crumbs, nuts, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter; reserve. Blend cake mix, water, oil and eggs on low speed until moistened; beat 4 minutes on medium speed. Spread 1/3 of batter (about 1-2/3 cups) in pan, sprinkle with 1/2 of reserved mixture (about 2 cups). Repeat using the second third of batter, remaining reserved mixture and last third of batter. Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely. Spread cake with Caramel Glaze, allowing some to drizzle down side.
