Honey Bun Cake

This was the perfect breakfast for our cold, snowy morning! I am a sucker for any recipe that calls for butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.


Recipe courtesy of my co-worker Monica.

preheat oven to 350
grease 13 x 9 cake pan
set aside 1/2 cup yellow cake mix

mix together in a large bowl...
  • 1 box yellow cake mix (less the 1/2 cup set aside)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 sticks butter (softened)
  • 8 ounces sour cream
spread half of the batter evenly in the baking dish

mix together in a small bowl...
  • 1/2 cup cake mix (previously set aside)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
sprinkle dry mixture over the batter in the baking dish
spread the remaining batter over the dry mixture (TIP: I pour it down the middle and spread out toward the edges using a small teaspoon... the batter is thick and will be difficult to spread.)

bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

whisk together in a small bowl...
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 4 tablespoons milk
while cake is still hot, use knife to poke holes in the cake
pour frosting over and smooth with a spatula
the frosting will harden like a glaze

best when served warm!
