How is it that I have been blogging for over 2 years and I haven't shared this recipe?!
Another steer buyer was headed our way the other day so I popped this yummy cake in the oven. The kids say I feed everyone who wanders down the dirt road and I suppose there is some merit to that, but hey that's not a bad thing, is it?
I figure if someone's driving all the way out here, I can at least feed them. Said buyer, was slated to arrive at 8 in the morning. Too late for breakfast and too early for dinner, but I figured DH would bring him in for a cup of coffee while he wrote the check and what better to serve with coffee than this warm treat!
A fellow 4-H horse-judging mom was kind enough to share this recipe with me years ago and it's been a hit around here ever since. We're starting our spring branding next week and it'll probably find it's way to the table during breakfast one day so I'll be making it again.
It starts with a cake mix, but don't judge me for it.
Honey Bun Cake
1 yellow cake mix (1/2 c reserved)
1 C softened butter
8 oz sour cream
1/4 c milk
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c chopped pecans
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c dry cake mix
1 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 Tbsp milk
*Reserve 1/2 c dry cake mix. Mix rest of cake mix with butter, eggs, and sour cream and milk. Pour 1/2 into a 9x13" pan. Combine brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, and cake mix and sprinkle over batter. Top with remaining batter. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and poke holes in cake. Drizzle glaze over cake and enjoy!
