Honey Bun Sheet Cake Recipe

This is one of those recipes that has been in my index card file for about 15 years, and that every once in a while I have to make.  It sort of melts in your mouth.  I got it from a secretary at a college I worked at years ago.  She brought it to a potluck, and I just HAD to have the recipe.  She was kind enough to share.


Ingredients:
1 box yellow cake mix
3/4 cup oil (okay to substitute applesauce for half the oil, I always do)
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup raisins
4 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla
3 tsp. milk

Combine cake mix, oil, buttermilk, sugar and eggs.  Pour into a greased sheet cake pan.  Mix together the brown sugar, pecans, raisins and cinnamon.  "Swirl" into cake.  Bake at 300* for 1 hour. 

Mix confectioners sugar, vanilla, and milk.  Drizzle over cake while still hot. 

This is also a great recipe for a brunch!  Enjoy.

Sounds wonderful, Lisa... We've been dieting this week (today is the last day) ---so everything on the internet this week seems to be talking about some kind of delicious foods... ha ha

I apologize if you are the one who gave me this recipe but IF not, you might be interested in it... Mix a box of Angel Food mix with a 20 oz can of crushed pineapple in its own juice. Just stir it by hand. It turns fluffy. Once it's mixed up, pour it in a greased 9x12 baking dish and bake at 350 for 30 minutes... (You can add topping such as confect.. sugar--or something.. But they say it is good just as it is.) I have the ingredients and will try it next week.

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

Years ago, I told a blog bud that a large group and I had chipped in and rented a bus, and we were all heading over to her house for a recipe she posted! This is another one that would be worth the long trip across the country! Looks great. :)

I make a coffee cake that's sort of similar. It has pie filling in with yellow cake, milk, eggs, and oil.
