Honey Bun Cake

from Lisa @The Cutting Edge of Ordinary
adapted from a recipe at The Country Cook
1 box yellow cake mix
3/4 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
8oz container sour cream

For filling:

1 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon


2 cups powdered sugar
4 Tablespoons milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick spray and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

In the bowl of a mixer, combine cake mix, oil, eggs , and sour cream. Beat on low speed for a few seconds, then on medium just until batter is fully combined and all large lumps are gone. (about a minute)

Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Spread evenly (batter will be thick). Sprinkle all of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture evenly across the surface. Cover with remaining cake batter, spreading evenly (spreading can be a bit difficult because the batter is thick — if some of the topping shows through or ends up mixed in with the top layer, it’s totally fine). Bake cake for about 30-40 minutes, until center is set.
