I actually wasn’t going to post this.  Then, at the very last second (literally already started to move the fork to the plate), I decided to take a picture to share it with you.  I’ve made this recipe several times and I still love it.  I must be honest though, it’s not my original recipe.  I have no idea where I originally saw this recipe, so if you are the creator, please let me know!  🙂



Please ignore the green plastic Ikea children’s plate.  Again, I decided to take this picture at the very last second.


Honeybun Cake

For the cake:

1 box yellow cake mix

4 eggs

1 cup sour cream

3/4 cup vegetable oil


For the swirl:

1 cup light brown sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon


For the glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar

6 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat the oven to 350.  In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, sour cream, and oil.  Mix well.  In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon.  Pour half the batter into a 9×13 pan.  Add the sugar mixture to form a layer over the entire pan.  Add the remaining batter.  Use a knife to create swirl patterns.  Bake for 40 minutes.  Before taking it out of the oven, mix the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla to make the glaze.  Pour over the cake while it is still warm.
