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! :)

Honey Bun Cake

  • 1 yellow cake mix with pudding
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 2/3 c. oil
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 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.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  Let the cake cool for 10 minutes then drizzle icing on top.

Icing Recipe

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • milk to consistency you like

Note:  This cake can also be made in a bundt pan.  Just layer the cake batter and cinnamon sugar mixture…then swirl. :)

  18. Hi just seen recipe but dont know what yellow cake mix with pudding is. Is this something in a packet from supermarkets? writing from the UK and would love to try this bun cake

    • 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! :)
