Sooo bad for you, but tastes sooo good. My family loves this cake; it tastes just like a honey bun.

  • Combine cake mix, sour cream, eggs, and oil in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer for 3 minutes. Pour half of the batter into the prepared baking pan.

  • Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Sprinkle over batter in the pan. Carefully pour the remainder of the batter over the cinnamon-sugar layer.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.

  • Mix confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla together in a bowl. Poke holes in the hot cake with a fork and pour sugar mixture over the top of the cake. Let cake cool completely before serving, about 30 minutes.

I expected it to be better. it was alright, but it wasn't great or anything. just average, if not less. it was really mushy and it was too sweet. maybe a good dessert for young children, but it's overall too milky. Read More

Whew! This is a sweet moist cake! I would try next time making half of the sugar mixture you poke into the cake. It has great flavors with the brown sugar and cinnamon in the cake. It even looks like a yummy honey bun. Small slices! Enjoy! Read More

Deliciously decadent! Great to bring to brunch gatherings. Never had a complaint just request for the recipe. For the icing I used almond milk in lieu of milk and added a bit of vanilla paste. Read More
