I lost this recipe when we moved & am so glad to find it again. I made the cake this morning for my husband's office & here's what he said--"I had 2 pieces & others had several--it was very very good!" Here are the only adjustments I made: cut the white sugar to 1/4 cup, cut the oil to 1/2 cup, added 1/3 cup water; left out the raisins & nuts. Baking temp of 300 seemed to low to me, so I upped it to 325, then to 340. I think the temp & time need adjustment. The icing was great--I added 1/4 t maple flavoring & 1 t vanilla. Thanks for a keeper Suzanne!

This cake had a nice flavor and the convenience of a mix. We enjoyed it, but I made it in a tube pan and there was WAY too much struesel filling. Maybe a sheet pan can hold all of that but it seemed like an awful lot!

Great! Although, I did omit the raisins & nuts. I did use 8 oz. of sour cream & you may want to reduce the brown sugar a bit. It is for the sweet tooth but it is Wonderful!

This cake is even better than the original honey bun cake, and that is saying a lot because the original is to die for.

This really tastes like something from a bakery! You can't ask for an easier recipe either. I made this for Easter brunch and it went first and fast. Extremely moist too!

This was soooooo delicious!! My husband told me not to take any to work. I took some in anyway and they all wanted the recipe. One woman made it and said that she just couldn't stop eating it! I followed the recipe exactly as written.

Very good cake, I've made 20 of these cake so far. We kicked up the temp to 375 degree for 55-60 mninutes. I added 2 tablespoons of bourbon(wild Turkey 101 to the frosting to change the flavor on some of them. you can add Rum or your favorite extract. also taste good with almonds or pecans.
