Honey Bun Cake Recipe

It is football time once again here in East Tennessee. For our family, that means every Friday night is dedicated to go watch our son play high school football. Plus, we open up our home to any of the football players on his team to come and eat dinner with us. We are never for sure just how many will show up for supper. Tonight I am expecting anywhere between 8 to 12 football players to surround our supper table. This is one way that we can develop relationships with these young men and spend some time to get to know them. Kids will relate just about every time if you give them a meal or two. It is a great opportunity to get to know the kids that are on our son's team. I usually do not use many prepackaged ingredients when I cook. However, I do have some tried and true recipes that start with a prepackaged ingredient. This Honey Bun Cake is one of our favorites. I make it when I need a quick dessert, and I have also included it in a morning buffet menu. Hope you enjoy!

1 yellow box of cake mix
3/4 cup oil
4 eggs
8 oz Sour cream

Mix the above well with a mixer. Pour half of cake batter into a well greased and floured 9x13 cake pan. In seperate bowl, mix 1 cup brown sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon. Sprinkle that on the cake. Pour rest of batter on top of cinnamon mixture. Bake in 350 oven for about 38 to 40 minutes.

2 cup powder sugar
4 Tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla

Pour over hot cake.

grace and peace,

yummm! can't wait to try this recipe, thanks for sharing! That's a great thing you do for the kids, I've found through the years with having some of the kids friends eat with us that not a lot of mom's cook meals everyday and it really means a lot to them to get a home cooked meal~sharon

I am amazed at how many moms don't cook. I know I wouldn't cook near as much if I worked full time so I think that is a lot of it.
