Lighter Honey Bun Cake


This cake is definitely not as rich as the Cinnamon Roll Cake recipe found here, but it is an awesome substitute treat while you are trying to watch your diet! The photos look very similar, and actually the taste, while not as rich, is very similar,too.( Look at my sidebar for the other photo.}

 In fact, this cake is awesome!

It's moist and delicious, and full of cinnamon flavor. I have taken this to many potlucks, and always get asked for the recipe. Nobody can believe it has lighter ingredients.

I think you could also cut back on the brown sugar and use less icing. For the photo above, I drizzled alittle extra icing on top.

 Give it a try!

I just made this and it's delicious! Thanks for sharing. I made the Cinnamon Roll Cake last week and that was so yummy but this one is almost as good. I also used no-fat Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. :)

Looks wonderful! I certainly will give it a try, but hopefully I'll wait til there's company coming so I can have people to share it with! :-)
