Honey bun cake 

With all the sickness and stress going around, I have been pretty lax about blogging. However, I have been trying new recipes and this is one I have made twice in one week.

I saw this on a blog follow on Facebook  from Bette Mills. I just simply made it my own! 


I tried this with butter cake mix and yellow cake mix and I like the first the butter recipe  better….

This cake is very versitile, whether you are making it for an event or just to accompany a cup of coffee.

 Here is what I used.


1 box butter recipe cake mix

4 oz of sour cream

4 large eggs 

7 tablespoons of softened unsalted butter 

1 cup light brown sugar 

2 teaspoons of cinnamon 

2 cups confectioners sugar 

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 table spoons milk 

Tools needed 

9″ x 13″ pan 

Fork or wisk


Small bowl

Large bowl

Oven heated to 325 f 


Take the sour cream, butter, and eggs and mix together until combined.

Mix in the cake mix and stir 50 times by hand 

Put half of the mix in the greased pan and spread evenly.

Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together and spread across the pan evenly. Take the fork and make swirls.

Add the remainder of the cake mix to the pan, spread it evenly and place in a 325 degree  f oven for 40 minutes.

Remove from oven and set aside.

Take the confectioners sugar, vanilla and milk and stir together should have a thicker consistency. If it is runny add a little more sugar. 

Put the icing on the cake and let sit for about 5-10 minutes for icing to harden.

Cut and serve …. Enjoy ! This cake is a keeper !
