Honey Bun Cake

I made this last week for the kiddos.  They assured me it was delicious and tasted like actual honey buns.  I dared not eat it lest I run the whole ship into an iceberg!

This recipe is from the Cake Doctor cook book.  That means it's easy!
    • 1 (18 ounce) packages yellow cake mix
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • ¾ cup vegetable oil
    • 4 large eggs 
    • 13 cup honey
    • 1⁄3  cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    • ½ cup nuts, finely chopped  (I did not use)
    • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
    • 13 cup milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Combine all the cake ingredients and set aside.
  2. Thoroughly combine the filling ingredients.
  3. Pour the batter into the pan.  Top with the filling, then swirl with a  knife.  Not too much!
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 38-40 minutes in a 13x9" greased baking pan. Meanwhile prepare the sugar glaze.
  5. Cool cake on wire rack for 10 minutes.
  6. While still warm, poke holes in the cake and pour the glaze over it.  Serve warm!


  1. I'm totally stealing this recipe to take to the tea this weekend. Thanks!

  2. It looks really really rich. I don't like sweets, but I bet my kids would go gaga over that one.
