Honey Bun Cake

Today is MOPs at First Bible Church and my table is in charge of snacks. I had forgotten about it until last night. Thank goodness I keep some things on hand to be able to produce something easy at a moment's notice.  I decided to make my Honeybun Cake as it is similar to a coffee cake. Also I can make it this morning and it will still be warm when I get to my meeting! Thanks to my church lady friend, Debbie L, for this recipe.

Honey Bun Cake

Preheat oven to 350.

1 box of yellow cake mix( I only had French Vanilla so that is what I used this morning!!)
3/4 c vegetable oil
4 eggs
8 oz sour cream
 Combine in the bowl of an electric mixer and mix until smooth.

3/4 c brown sugar
1 T ground Cinnamon
Mix together and set aside. I  added some chopped pecans, about one cup, to mine. I love pecans!

Prepare a Bundt or tube pan. Bakers Joy is my go to for this and I have never had any problem getting a cake out of the pan.

Spoon half of the cake batter into pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar / cinnamon mixture. Top with remaining batter.

Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes. Mine took 40....each oven seems to be different.

Glaze...2 c confectioners sugar
             4 T milk
             2 tsp vanilla

While cake is warm in the pan, poke holes around the top with a fork and pour glaze over cake.
Cool and remove from pan.

This is a nice recipe for a brunch or a great afternoon snack when the kiddos come home from school. Who doesn't enjoy a warm piece of freshly baked cake? One of the true joys in life in my opinion.

I'm just about ready to get up and give this a try! Oh my goodness it sounds delicious!

Mildred and Terri, you can make it in a 9 by 13 dish as well and put the glaze on the top. If I am taking it to a covered dish, I find it is easier to transport and serve!
