Peggy’s Honey Bun Cake Is Moist and Delicious

I’ve tasted my fair share of honey bun cakes over the years. Some are just okay, some are dry, and some are really bad. Well, Peggy’s Honey Bun Cake is moist and delicious. If you try it and say it isn’t, it’s you, not the cake. 🙂 Here are some tips to make sure your cakes are always moist.

How to Make a Honey Bun Cake

I’m usually more of a pie or cobbler kind of girl, but I love a cake if it’s moist and has lots of icing or glaze. This one has the perfect amount of glaze and cinnamon. Did I mention how easy it is to make?

When I shared Peggy’s Pineapple Pudding, I mentioned how much I love her Honey Bun Cake. I immediately started getting requests for the recipe. You ask. I deliver. You’re welcome.

Let’s Make a Honey Bun Cake

Peggy’s Honey Bun Cake begins with a yellow cake mix with pudding in the mix. I usually make my cakes from scratch, but hey, I’m all about easy.

Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and sour cream. Mix until well combined. Pour into a lightly greased 9×13 baking pan.

Cake Batter for Honey Bun Cake

In a separate bowl, mix together cinnamon and brown sugar. Spoon the mixture on top of the cake batter.

Spoon brown sugar mixture over cake batter to make a honey bun cake.

With a knife, swirl the cinnamon mixture into the cake batter. Using the same knife, smooth the top of the cake.

Swirl brown sugar mixture into the cake batter.

Bake at 350º for 40 minutes.

To make the glaze, combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix together and pour over warm cake. I let the cake cool on a wire rack while I mix the glaze ingredients together.
