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
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.
