We have a VERY SPECIAL guest blogger today – my seven year old nephew, Lane! Let me tell ya, no one has ever been prouder to be on Southern Plate than him. I had no idea that he wanted to post until my sister said a few weeks ago “Lane thinks if he makes his Honey Bun Cake and takes pictures you’ll put him on Southern Plate.” My immediate response was “Well of course, I will!”
My mother helped him make this cake and she took all of the photos. She says:
Nothing thrills me more than knowing that kids read this site. I have several parents who list Southern Plate among one of the few websites they allow their children to go to and I want to let you all know that this is a great honor for me and one I do not take lightly. Southern Plate is and always will be a family friendly site and children will always be honored guests. The next generation keeps past generations alive. If you are a kid who reads Southern Plate, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
All of your kids are welcome on Southern Plate. If any of your children see this post and wants to be featured on the site, simply upload a photo of them to my Southern Plate Family page on Facebook and I’ll put them in a post as a “Featured Reader Of The Day”.
Here are the ingredients for Lane’s Honey Bun Cake: 1 Box yellow cake mix, vegetable oil, eggs, sour cream, brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, honey.
For the glaze you’ll also need: Confectioner’s sugar, Milk, and Vanilla.
Mix together: Cake mix, Eggs, Oil, and Sour Cream.
Beat with an electric mixer on about medium for about two minutes.
Prepare the topping by measuring out brown sugar..
And mixing it in a bowl with cinnamon and pecans.
Mix that up really well. See how focused he is?
Spread cake batter in a greased 9×13 inch pan. Drizzle 1/4 C honey over batter.
You can approximate the honey :).
Spoon topping ingredients over this.
Take a butter knife and cut through the top a bit in a swirl pattern to combine it just a weeee bit.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, or until done.
Once done, it will look like this.
and if kids are around, they will smell it and smile like this, too!
Prepare a glaze of confectioners sugar, water, and vanilla.
Just place them all in a bowl and stir until well combined and smooth.
Spoon over warm cake.
Grin like a Cheshire Cat!
Take a bite…
Think about whether or not it is as good as it smells…
Decide that it DEFINITELY is…
And KICK UP YOUR HEELS!!!
I think I’m gonna eat my next meal like this…
What you learn…teach….what you get….give!
