Honey Bun Cake

This cake is another family favorite of ours! My brother request this cake every year for his birthday. 

What you need:
1 box of yellow cake mix
2/3 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour cream
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup pecans{this is optional, I left them out because my child doesn't like nuts. It is still just as good without the nuts}
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cup powdered sugar
2+ Tbsp milk

Heat ove to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9 cake pan. 

Mix together cake mix,oil,eggs,and sour cream together in a large bowl.

In a small bowl mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans{if you are using them}

Spread half of the cake mix into the cake pan and sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on top. Spread the rest of the cake mix on top.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

Mix the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla together until thin. You may have to add a bit more milk.

Prick cake with a fork and pour icing on the cake. 

Let sit until the icing is set.
