How to make Honey Bun Coffee Cake


– 1 box yellow cake mix

– 8 ounce tub sour cream

– 4 eggs

– 3/4 c. vegetable oil

– 1 c brown sugar

– 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

– 2 c. powdered sugar

– 4 Tbsp. milk

– 1 Tbsp. vanilla


– Preheat oven to 325. Prepare 9 x 13 pan.

– In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil, and sour cream.

– Stir by hand until large lumps are gone. There will still be some lumps but that’s ok.

– Pour half the batter into the pan.

– Now, in a medium bowl. Take your brown sugar and cinnamon and combine.

– Mix up your brown sugar and cinnamon really well.

– Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture all over the batter in the cake pan.

– Don’t do what I did below. Be sure to get that cinnamon mixture all the way to the edge of the pan.

– Now carefully spread the other half of the batter on top.

– Don’t be afraid, it’s gonna get really uncomfortable.

– All the batter and stuff is gonna get all mixed together and you’re gonna think you are doing it all wrong.

– But don’t worry how it looks. Trust me.

– Once it’s all spread around, take a butter knife and twirl it all through the batter, so it gets all swirly and stuff.

– Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

– Just when it’s about done baking, mix together your powdered sugar, vanilla and milk.

– I always use a fork to be sure all the little clumps get broken up.

– Once the cake comes out of the oven, waste no time at all.

– Pour this powdered sugar mixture over the warm cake.

– Now sit back and wait for the wonderful crackle to appear.

– Oh that honey bun topping.

– Try your hardest to wait about 15 minutes before you cut into her.

– I know it’s gonna be hard waiting, especially if you have a nice cup of coffee sitting there.

– But once it’s time, close your eyes, and see if it takes you back to your Honey Bun days.

– And if you don’t have any Honey Bun memories, then start those memories today, right now.
