Honey Bun Cake

This easy honey bun cake is sweet, tangy, and has a delicious, brown sugar crumble center with a white glaze for the perfect finishing touch.

Yellow cake mix Eggs Vegetable oil Greek yogurt Dark brown sugar Ground cinnamon Powdered sugar Whole milk Vanilla extract Chopped pecans


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 cake pan. Set the pan aside while you make the cake batter.


Whisk the cake mix, eggs, oil, and yogurt together until smooth. Spread half of the batter in the bottom of the greased cake pan.


Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mix over the cake batter in the cake pan.


Pour the rest of the batter into the cake pan and spread it over the cinnamon sugar mix. Use a butter knife to swirl the batter, making cinnamon swirls throughout the cake. 


Bake the honey bun cake for about 30 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center of the cake will come out clean once the cake is fully baked.


Let the baked cake cool in the pan while you make the frosting.


Whisk the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract together then spread the glaze over the top of the warm honey bun cake.


Sprinkle with pecans, if using. Then, slice and serve!


While it may technically be a cake, I actually do enjoy a slice of honey bun for breakfast. Sometimes you just need something sweet to start the day!
