Honey Bun Cake

Posted by Lori:

Well, my husband is continuing his recent baking hobby by providing his co-workers with a weekly treat of some sort. Today at noon he came home and made a cake for them to enjoy this afternoon. He said it got great reviews, so I decided to share it with you today. I'm thinking his co-workers must be really excited about his new hobby!


1 yellow cake mix
3/4 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

2 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and sour cream. Stir by hand until most of the large lumps are gone. Pour half of the batter into an ungreased 9 x 13 inch cake pan. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the batter in the cake pan. Spoon the other half of the batter into the cake pan, covering the brown sugar and cinnamon. Swirl the cake with a butter knife until it looks like a honey bun. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. While cake is baking make glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Pour glaze over the cake while it is still warm.

Can be made in a Bundt pan. If doing a Bundt cake, grease and flour the pan. Sprinkle some of the cinnamon/brown sugar mixture in the Bundt pan BEFORE the first layer of cake batter, as well as in between the two cake batter layers. Also, you will not need all of the glaze for a Bundt cake.

Because of the cool, rainy fall weather we've been having, this cake seems like the perfect treat. The cake is great at any temperature, but my husband says it's best warm.

I have a honey bun cake recipe that I make, it's very similar. I absolutely love it, and it's super easy to make. It is so gooey you almost can't get it out of the cake pan!
