Honey Bun Cake Recipe

My sister-in-law made this cake this past weekend for my nephew’s birthday party. It’s SO yummy and I can’t wait to make it!  Y’all are going to LOVE this recipe!! :)

And just in case you’re wondering, it really does taste like honey buns…not that I eat them often…but from what I remember! :)

  • 1-2 t. cinnamon

Add cake mix, eggs, water, oil and sour cream in a bowl and mix well.  Pour into a 9×13 pan.

Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over cake mixture.  Swirl the cinnamon sugar mixture through the cake mixture.

Icing Recipe

      Hi Joan! Do you have boxed cake mixes in the UK? The one that was used for this recipe is a yellow cake mix with dry pudding already in the mix. I hope that helps you out! :)
