Honey Bun Cake Repeat

I posted this about 2 years ago, but I only had a handful of blog buddies back then and this one is worth posting twice. I figured I would post the whole recipe here instead of just linking to the original post although it's worth an extra click. :)
I'm taking the leftovers to the neighboring ranch this morning.

Honey Bun Cake

How is it that I have been blogging for over 2 years and I haven't shared this recipe?!

Another steer buyer was headed our way the other day so I popped this yummy cake in the oven. The kids say I feed everyone who wanders down the dirt road and I suppose there is some merit to that, but hey that's not a bad thing, is it?

I figure if someone's driving all the way out here, I can at least feed them. Said buyer, was slated to arrive at 8 in the morning. Too late for breakfast and too early for dinner, but I figured DH would bring him in for a cup of coffee while he wrote the check and what better to serve with coffee than this warm treat!

A fellow 4-H horse-judging mom was kind enough to share this recipe with me years ago and it's been a hit around here ever since. We're starting our spring branding next week and it'll probably find it's way to the table during breakfast one day so I'll be making it again.
It starts with a cake mix, but don't judge me for it.

Honey Bun Cake

1 yellow cake mix (1/2 c reserved)
1 C softened butter
4 eggs
8 oz sour cream
1/4 c milk

1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c chopped pecans
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c dry cake mix
1 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 Tbsp milk
*Reserve 1/2 c dry cake mix. Mix rest of cake mix with butter, eggs, and sour cream and milk. Pour 1/2 into a 9x13" pan. Combine brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, and cake mix and sprinkle over batter. Top with remaining batter. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and poke holes in cake. Drizzle glaze over cake and enjoy!

Oh my, this looks pretty tasty!

Yes, it was common for everyone who dropped by the farm to come to the house for a cup of coffee and a treat. It was the neighborly thing to do.

Whew! That sounds quite lovely; no wonder it's such a big hit! We've got a group coming up to the camp in a couple of weeks to do some service projects...this would be a terrific way to say "thank you"!! :)

Okay, you gotta stop with the recipes that I can't make, lol. We don't have yellow cake mix in Greece either, do you think homemade cake would work? We do get Betty Crocker's Chocolate Devils Food Cake and I have one in the pantry, I save those for special occasions! but I'm not sure that would be to tasty for honey buns.

I will definitely vouch for this recipe being one worth posting twice. Back when you first posted it, I tried it, and it's one of my favorite recipes EVER! I've taken it to quilting gatherings and potlucks, and it's always a hit, no matter where I go.
