Honey Bun Cake I
I used a Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Orange Supreme 18.25 oz cake mix.
Since my family likes things extra-sweet, I added 1/2 cup white sugar to the batter as indicated by the other honey bun cake recipe on here & an extra teaspoon of cinnamon @ 1/2 cup chopped walnuts to the brown sugar mixture. I put 1/2 the brown sugar/cinnamon/nut mix to the center, then the other 1/2 on the top (which will become the bottom of the bundt cake).
Baked it at time & temp indicated in this recipe, but had to increase temp to 350 & bake an additional 30 minutes more to get it to finish (due to the increase in fluid via the sugar added to the cake mixture).
For the icing, instead of milk & vanilla extract, I used the juice from 2 small oranges & about a tablespoon of butter. I also had to use a little more than 2 cups powdered sugar to get it to thicken. But in my family, the more icing, the better.
This was a big hit with the whole family - would definitely make it again!
