Honey Bun Cake Recipe

This is my honey bun cake recipe.  It is really easy but oh so delicious.   1 box yellow cake mix, 4 eggs, 3/4 cup oil, 8 oz.sour cream (or sour cream substitute).  Mix ingredients, spread 1/2 mixture in a greased 9X13 cake pan.  Sprinkle 1/2 of the following mixture on top–1 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon.  Spread remainder of cake batter on top sprinkle remaining brown sugar mixture on top of this.  Swirl batter with a butter knife.  Bake at 350 degrees 35 minutes or until done.  For the glaze I use 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tsp. vanilla and 5-6 tbsp evaporated milk.    Drizzle glaze on while cake is still warm and enjoy.  I would like to take a minute to thank my friend Marie for this recipe.  She is one of the best cooks I have ever known.  Unfortunately, Alzheimers has robbed her memory of many great recipes but every time I make this cake I think of her.  I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do.  God Bless.

Before and Now


Winter 2010

I thought you all might enjoy seeing how much snow we have.  I wanted to give you something to judge by, so I found the picture of the rock area in summer and then how it looks this morning.  And guess what?  It’s still snowing.  Perhaps most of the day.  Wow!  This is definitely a record year for snow accumulation here.  But you know, even with all the snow we’ve had, I still think it is beautiful.  When it is fresh and bright white, it is georgeous.   However, one can only stand so much white, right.  I am ready to see some yellow, purple, red.  Some pansies would be nice, right Jess.  Well, everything has a season.  I think I want to enjoy this season and what God wants to bless us with instead of wishing for something else.  I’m working on this process, anyway.  100_2802

I made a honey bun cake yesterday.  It turned out really good.  The recipe called for sour cream.  I did not have any and as we are snowed in couldn’t just run to the store to get some.  I went on line (what would we do without the internet) and found a substitute for sour cream.  Put 1 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice in a cup-add enough milk to make 1 cup.  It really works.  I could not taste the difference.  Well, I thinks I’ll get busy watching the snow. God Bless.
