Dessert-Cinnamon Roll Cake

This is another cake made with a cake mix. Hmmmmmmm, it came from a newspaper clipping and I haven't tried it as of yet. It sounds wonderful and I just might have to break down, get out the mixing bowl, and start adding and stirring. Remember I am on a mission to shed pounds so I am trying to be good. These recipes are giving me the jitters and may break me down to cook just one more sweet treat.
1 Cinnamon Swirl cake mix
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream(some use low fat)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/3 cup cinnamon chips(look for them in the same place as chocolate chips)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix cake mix, eggs, sour cream, oil and water, and beat for 2 minutes on medium with electric mixer (or by hand until smooth). Swirl the package of cinnamon mixture(included in the cake mix package). Use a spoon, and do not over mix. Place half of butter in a greased or sprayed tube or Bundt pan. Mix the brown sugar, nuts, cinnamon and cinnamon chips in a small bowl, and sprinkle half of this mixture over the half of batter in pan. Then pour on the remaining batter, and top with remaining cinnamon chip mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until tests done with a toothpick. Let stand in pan for about 10 minutes and then place on cake plate to cool. (It is prettier if you invert it onto another plate and then carefully turn it over on to a cake plate so that the cinnamon-nut topping is on top.)
