I loved this cake and so did my in-laws, husband, son and co-workers. I made just as written except I used about 3/4 cup of brown sugar...because that is all I had on hand. It was perfect and so yummy, even on the next day! I will be making this again for sure!

Delicious and very easy to make! I only used 3/4 cup brown sugar and it was plenty sweet. Everyone loved it. Will make again.

As far as to tell you it tastes like a honeybun,I don't know,because I had to leave TWICE while I was trying to mix all the ingredients,so in a rush,I ACCIDENTALLY mixed ALL the cake ingredients!! It turned out GREAT though. VERY moist and all the flavors seem to meld together.I then poked holes in the top with a skewer for the glaze to soak in.Thanks for the recipe!

I have had this exact recipe for years. It is one of my favorite things to take to gatherings. It always gets rave reviews. I am making it today at my daughters request for her birthday.

This is an easy, quick recipe to make but we all found it way too sweet for our tastes - between the 1cup brown sugar and the icing sugar glaze. My kids wouldn't eat it. It is much better with ice cream or whipping cream on top than without. I would cut the brown sugar to 1/2 cup next time.

This really does taste like a honeybun. I made this for one of several desserts on Thanksgiving and it went fast. My 7 yr old asked me if I would make this for every birthday we have at our house.

Pretty simple to make and popular with a wide variety of people. It's not something I would make often, but good to have in the files.

The house smelled so good while this was baking. It's not to sweet and is perfect with coffee. I'll be making this again.
