Honey Bun Cake

Holy cow.  You have GOT to try this recipe.  It is amazing!

It is cinnamon-y goodness at it's best and a definite recipe favorite in my house.

It's sort of like a coffee cake...only different.  The sour cream adds a rich denseness to it and the cinnamon sugar mixture sends it over the top.

Make this today for your honey bunnies.  They will l♥ve you for it...Probably even more than they love you today.
Honey Bun Cake

For Cake:
1 box yellow cake mix (I prefer Duncan Hines)
1 cup sour cream
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup oil

For Cinnamon Sugar Mixture:
3/4 cup brown sugar 
3 Tablespoons cinnamon

For Glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3-4 Tablespoons milk

Mix the ingredients for the cake together.  When thoroughly mixed, pour HALF of the batter into a bundt pan or 9x13 baking pan.

Combine the ingredients for the cinnamon sugar mixture and sprinkle HALF of the mixture onto the batter.

Pour the remaining batter over the cinnamon sugar mixture and then top with the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture.

Bake in a preheated oven 300 degrees for about 45-50 minutes.

Prepare glaze mixture right before taking the cake out of the oven.  Drizzle the glaze over the hot cake and let cool.  The glaze will harden as the cake cools
