Here's you a good one!

I know, I know. It's been forever since I've posted. Some of you may have even given up on me. Well, hopefully there are one or two faithful friends out there. Tonight I made this cake for our Wednesday night meal. I take something almost every week so I don't know why I keep putting off deciding what to take until that day. I just happened to have a yellow cake mix though so I decided to make this one. I've made it a few times before and am always surprised at how easy it is. It's another one from the Cake Mix Doctor cookbook and I think you will like it. Keep the ingredients on hand and you always have something ready and fast to take to a friend who had a bad day, a breakfast party, or a special breakfast treat on a special day.

Honey Bun Cake

1 package yellow cake mix
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs

1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. cinnamon

2 cups powdered sugar (You can sift this if you want to but I don't and it turns out fine.)
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with nonstick spray.
Place cake mix, sour cream, oil, and eggs in a large bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed until blended. Scrape bowl down and beat on medium for 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pan.
(For this next part I didn't measure anything and it worked out fine.) Drizzle batter with honey. Sprinkle on the brown sugar (about two handfuls) and cinnamon. (You could add some chopped nuts here if you really wanted to.) Using a table knife, swirl these ingredients in slightly, but do not blend.
Bake for 38 to 40 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool while you prepare the glaze.
Combine the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a small bowl until well blended. Spread glaze over hot cake, using the back of a spoon to make sure the cake is competely covered. Allow 20 more minutes of cooling time before serving.

Now doesn't that sound easy and yummy! We had a small crowd tonight so there were some leftovers. I'm excited about my breakfast tomorrow!

I will try to do another post soon. I have some faithful standbys I like to use that I think you will like. Thanks for hanging with me!
