“If you love honeybuns, then you'll love this cake. It's literally a giant honeybun.” - by Michelle B. Pelphrey
Original recipe yields 1 9x13-inch cake
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch cake pan.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the cake mix, eggs, sour cream, vegetable oil, and water to make a smooth batter. In a separate bowl, stir together the brown sugar with cinnamon. Pour half the cake batter into the prepared baking pan, and sprinkle the brown sugar-cinnamon mixture over the batter. Pour the remaining batter over the cinnamon mixture, and gently swirl the batter a few times with a table knife.
- Bake the cake in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
- Stir the confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla extract together in a bowl to make a smooth, runny icing. Pour the icing over the cake while it's still hot; allow to cool before serving.

The texture of this cake is almost like a lighter version of a pound cake. My husband said this reminds him of Snickerdoodles. Absolutely DELICIOUS. This recipe's a keeper."
"I normally don't try recipes without a large number of reviews. I tried this one because I had all the ingredients on hand and was in a pinch. I followed the recipe exactly as it is written, and it ..." See moreis fantastic! The cake turns out dense and very moist; it looks, smells, and tastes like a honeybun. I served this as an after dinner dessert, but it could easily work with breakfast as well. Very simple recipe that I will make over and over again."
