  1. My granddaughter requested this cake for Christmas Day breakfast. It’s always a hit with the family!

  2. My son made this Honey Bun cake for Mother’s Day. It’s delicious and so moist. Good for breakfast too!

  3. I have made this recipe several times and it has become one of my family’s favorite desserts. I would like to try adding apples the next time I make it. Any tips on how to do this? Would it need to bake longer? I would love to hear any ideas! Thanks!

    My husband and i are newlyweds so I made this dessert for him because he loves honey buns. THIS dessert hit the spot! Since I know he doesn’t like his desserts too sweet, I only used 3/4 of brown sugar however, i did triple the icing glaze😃. Delish!!
