I'll find out which cookbook this is in and post later, but for now, here is a recipe I make by request often.

Honey Bun Cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; 325 degrees for a glass pan

Cake:
1 yellow cake mix (plain)
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup vegetable oil, such as canola, corn, safflower, etc.
4 large eggs

Mix all ingredients and pour into greased pan. (I use Pam)

Filling:
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)

Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl, the sprinkle over the batter. Drizzle with honey. Sprinkle the nuts.
With a spatula or knife, swirl until it looks like a honey bun. Optional (I usually make 9 swirls)

Bake 38 to 40 minutes, or till cake tests done

Sugar Glaze:
2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
1/3 cup of milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

In a small bowl, whisk together the confectioner's sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth.

Ice cake while it is still fairly hot.

Is good served warm.

Enjoy!

***
I don't use 2 cups of confectioners' sugar...half of that recipe is enough. less sugar too.

I have seen other recipes where you pour half the batter, sprinkle half of filling mixture, repeat steps, but this is much easier and tastes equally as great.

I made this the other day....from a slightly different recipe. The one I found was on ThePioneerwoman.com website.
Anyway...It was/is wonderful!!!!
I will have to try your recipe too. There was no honey in the other recipe, just brown sugar..and more of it.
I couldn't wait until Easter to try it...LOL!

I had similar recipes also, but drizzling the honey over the br.sugar/cinnamon mix, then swirling it into the batter makes this cake soooo much better!! The first one I got the glaze on while the cake was still warm, the second one I made had to wait for the glaze as I had to make a run to pick up Hubby. Even though the cake was still wonderful, putting the glaze over the cake after it comes out of the oven seems to make a difference!

its basically what they used to call a 'sock it to me' cake except you dont make it in a bundt pan plus you add honey.
