  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the sour cream, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the honey, brown sugar, and cinnamon to create the swirl mixture.
  7. Pour half of the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan. Sprinkle half of the swirl mixture over the batter.
  8. Pour the remaining batter over the swirl mixture, then sprinkle the remaining swirl mixture on top.
  9. Using a knife, gently swirl the batter and cinnamon mixture together to create a marbled effect.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  11. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then invert it onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  12. Once cooled, slice and serve your Honey Bun Pound Cake and enjoy!
