Chocolate Honey Bun Cake

Chocolate Honey Bun Cake Miss in the Kitchen Chocolate Honey Bun Cake

While going through my little recipe box the other day, I saw the recipe for Honey Bun Cake that I had cut off of the back of a Betty Crocker Cake Mix.  I hadn’t made one in forever and had a sudden craving for it.

I had a chocolate cake mix in the pantry and decided to change it up a bit and it totally worked.  I am a huge fan of cinnamon and chocolate and I knew the combination would be great in this cake.

I also had the hankering to try out the new Mixer Mate Bowl that I received for review.  It comes from the same folks that make the Beater Blade.

The Mixer Mate Bowl is designed to use with a hand-held mixer.  It has grippers on the bottom so that it doesn’t slide around on the counter plus under the sides for easy gripping with your hands.  It is shaped for the hand mixer to be the most efficient and less messy.  I can’t tell you how many times I have splattered cake batter all over the place!

This bowl is also great for hand mixing.  Just an all around handy bowl to have in your kitchen, if you ask me.  It comes in some cool colors too.  I love kitchen accessories that also brighten up the kitchen.  Plus it’s pretty enough to tote your favorite potato salad recipe in, when you have neighborhood barbecues and the like.

The boys were thrilled when the Chocolate Honey Bun Cake was finally cool enough to cut.

If you look closely you can see a finger smudge, apparently someone had to taste that chocolate glaze while it was still warm.  But if I asked, I am sure nobody would know anything!

Now how about winning a Mixer Mate Bowl for your kitchen?

I need to use up the thirty-some eggs in my refrigerator, so I’m thinking the bowl will be handy for a large frittata!

I would make most everything in this bowl. First thing would be egg custard pie…next would be this awesome looking chocolate cake!

Kim May 7, 2013 at 3:07 pm

Yay! I could make a heap of frosting without it flying all over the place in the wide bowls. I’m going to make this cake, with some modifications. My dad’s birthday is in a few days and Honeybuns (well, a verson of honeybuns from home-Belize) were his favorite. He passed away when I was a teen. So this will be his cake!
