Honey Bun Breakfast Cake {Momma Joyce's Recipes}

I get my crafty soul from my mom.  We grew up with glue gun burns and straight pin pokes.  She was always sewing, creating, crafting, or baking.

Of all the things she is good at it, it is her cooking and baking that have created quite a following.  Over the years, she has collected a whole list of staple recipes that friends and family always beg her to make.  Her recipes are simple with few ingredients and they almost always include sour cream, cream cheese, or mayonnaise (which guarantees their deliciousness).

One of these staple dishes is her honey bun cake.  This cake shows up at every brunch and breakfast she cooks for and you can guarantee we will eat it every Christmas morning.   It is a crowd pleaser and so stinking yummy!

Even though we just ate it at my parents house on Christmas morning, I had to make it for my hubby and I to enjoy on New Years Day.
