Honey Bun Cake

Angie Blankenship


Originally found this recipe in a Full Cry (hunting magazine) LOL! I have cooked this several times & the cake is gone in no-time. I added/changed a couple of items that made it more to my liking. The original recipe calls for Yellow cake mix, i changed to Butter Pecan. Also, I have added minced pecan whereas it didn't have it in original recipe. My husband & family all love this cake. My friends all ask for the recipe & they all say they like it. Hopefully you will all like it too!

How to Make Honey Bun Cake


  1. In Medium sized mixing bowl combine the cake mix, oil, eggs & the sour cream. Hint... I don't do nothin' but dump into the bowl, Mix well. Then Pour it into a Greased & Floured Tube Pan.
  2. In a separate medium sized bowl, mix together the Brown Sugar, Cinnamon & the Pecans.
    Sprinkle & Swirl 1/2 of mixture into the Cake Batter.
    Remaining mixture, sprinkle this on top of Cake Batter.
  3. In preheated 350 degree oven; bake for aprox. 1 Hour or until Golden Brown. Cake Tester is clean when removed.
    This is a very Moist Cake, just watch when close to an hour has passed.
  4. GLAZE --- Mix together the Glaze mixture & pour over the warm cake. This is important because it melts into the cake --- Enjoy this recipe because I have noticed that every man this is cooked for devours it. No Kidding!
