This recipe for Honey Bun Cake is one you will make for friends and relatives over and over again. My family can’t get enough of this cake. I promise it will be gone before you know it. Make it for breakfast to go with coffee or as a snack with milk anytime. Keeps well in a cool place or refrigerated and can be heated in the microwave or eat it cold. I think this is one of my all time favorites. This is great to make for breakfast if you have guests.
1 box yellow cake mix without the pudding in the mix
12 tablespoon butter or 1 1/2 sticks, melted
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup pecan or walnut pieces
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Cooking spray for pan
Topping or Icing
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 or 5 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine yellow cake mix, melted butter, eggs, buttermilk and almond extract and mix with mixer. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish and pour in the cake batter. Combine nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of cake batter and swirl into cake batter. (I just use a knife and kind of swirl it throughout the batter) Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Let cake cool. Mix together topping ingredients. (You can add more or less milk to the powdered sugar until you get the consistency you like for pouring) Pour or drizzle over cake. Enjoy!
