    a question---the directions say to use a 13 x 9 pan but the picture shows the yummy looking cake made in a bundt or tube pan. Does that mean the cooking time or temperature should be adjusted if you go this route? Also brown sugar is mentioned in the direction for the streusel type layer but is omitted in the ingredient list. I am trying it anyway but combining this with the box mix recipe and one I found printed elsewhere. Just thought it might help the next person as it sounds delicious!

    Henri,
    I made the Honey Bun Cake and what a hit! Thanks so much for sharing such a great recipe. The family loved it so much that I had to make a second one to take to work to share with the staff. Hope you'll keep 'em comin'!
