honey bun cake

IMG_20160716_174157This recipe came about from a friend at our homeschool group, Summer.  We were discussing quick and easy meals and she shared this dessert as a go- to dessert for special occasions.  I finally got the ingredients and decided to make it this weekend.  ummmm, yes I should have made it sooner:)

Remember honey buns as a child??? This tastes just like them, but more “real.”  Try it, next time you need a dessert to take for something special.

I doubled the recipe that will be why you see “twice” as many ingredients.

In large mixing bowl combine:

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream


Mix with an electric mixer for 3 minutes.IMG_20160716_124725

Take half the mixture and spread on bottom of 9 x13 greased cake pan.IMG_20160716_125040

In a small mixing bowl combine:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


Mix with a fork and then sprinkle over top of the batter in the pan.IMG_20160716_125909

Drop the rest of the batter on top of pecan topping.  Use a butter knife and spread it carefully to cover it completely.IMG_20160716_130321

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until done.  Take out of oven and mix in a small bowl the following:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 T milk
  • 1 t vanilla

Poke with  fork holes on top of warm cake.  Spread frosting on and let cool completely.
