Honey Bun Cake

Rating: 4.5 stars 1024
This honey bun cake tastes just like the name suggests — a honey bun! It has been served to hundreds of people and everyone has said how much they liked it. It is a sweet cake and not for those who are watching their weight. Tastes wonderful if served with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Thirty Day Friendship Cake

Rating: 4.5 stars 71
This takes 30 days to prepare the fruit for the cake but it's worth it. It's delicious. If you are lucky a 'friend' will give you 2 cups of starter along with a piece of cake so you won't have to go to all the trouble of preparing a starter. If you have the starter, begin with step 1. If you don't have the starter, follow the link to Friendship Fruit Starter. It will actually take 50 days total, if you need to make the starter.

Inspiration and Ideas

Sad Cake
Rating: Unrated 41
This cake is called sad cake because the cake looks sad. It actually "falls" during baking and is a flat cake. It may be sad looking, but it is moist, chewy, and sweet. It does not need frosting.
Coffee Cake

This recipe is a favorite of my father's, especially on Father's Day.
