1 (18.25 ounce) box
yellow cake mix
1 (8 ounce) carton
I made two small changes; I used melted butter instead of vegetable oil (I made fried chicken today, I didn't have enough oil for the cake) and I subtracted two teaspoons of water and added a teaspoon each of pure vanilla extract and almond extract. I baked this cake in a glass 9x13 baking pan--my cake was done at 32 minutes. This is one of the BEST cakes I've ever made. The texture of this cake is almost like a lighter version of a pound cake. My husband said this reminds him of Snickerdoodles. Absolutely DELICIOUS. This recipe's a keeper.
This was just ok for me. Too sweet.
I normally don't try recipes without a large number of reviews. I tried this one because I had all the ingredients on hand and was in a pinch. I followed the recipe exactly as it is written, and it is fantastic! The cake turns out dense and very moist; it looks, smells, and tastes like a honeybun. I served this as an after dinner dessert, but it could easily work with breakfast as well. Very simple recipe that I will make over and over again.
This cake was awesome. My guys devoured this in two days. It's so yummy. 5 star recipe!! One thing to note it's not the same texture as a honeybun which is good for me.
My mom has been making this for years. It is my husband's favorite. Very easy to make. Don't change a thing in the recipe!!
This is so easy and always a hit! Thank you Michelle.
Wow. I had a box of yellow butter recipe cake mix I needed to use and came across this recipe. I did not have high hopes since it was the butter recipe kind of mix and i only had fat free sour cream. Also, it just doens't look like a very exciting cake. I tried a piece shortly after I poured the icing on- it was not very good at all so I put it in the fridge thinking it might be better cold. A few hours later I tried a small piece and could not stop! Hubs even LOVED it and he is usually a strict peanut butter/chocolate dessert lover. Took some to my parents and they also loved it. Even my 6 year old said "oh my, this cake is delicious!" Will definitley make again- maybe with a bit extra cinnamon and I might bake at 325 since I use a non-stick pan. Awesome. You won't be sorry for trying this- except for when your pants don't fit anymore from eating it all!
