Honey Bun Cake is a super moist cake swirled with cinnamon and sugar and covered in a vanilla glaze. It tastes like a cinnamon roll, but in cake form! This is a tried and true recipe!

Hi, it’s Jenn, from Eat Cake For Dinner. Today, I am sharing one of my family’s favorite cake recipes with you. We have been making this recipe for years and it’s definitely a tried and true recipe.

When my mom first gave me this recipe, I put it aside and didn’t think much about it. After she had given it to me, I remember her talking about it several times and that she was making it AGAIN. I didn’t understand why they liked it so much, because it didn’t sound that special to me. Then, one afternoon, we were over at her house having lunch or a BBQ or something? I honestly don’t even remember what we were eating. However, she had this Honeybun Cake for dessert. I remember tasting it and I think my jaw might have dropped to the floor. OMG – WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME THIS CAKE WAS SO GOOD?

Now, I love anything with cinnamon. I love cinnamon so much that I buy it in the bulk section. This cake reminds me of a CINNAMON ROLL, but in cake form. You have a super moist cake, swirled with cinnamon and sugar and a gooey glaze on top! It is amazing warm, right out of the oven and it is amazing at room temperature.
