Pour into a greased and floured 10" Bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before turning out of pan. Allow to cool completely on wire rack.
For glaze, in a small saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar over low heat. Stir in half and half. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth, about 1 minute. Pour over cake. Serves 12.
