I know I dislike when things are discontinued and the recipe is still out there. I would think you could substitute it with Duncan Hines Golden cake mix and add cinnamon to the recipe. Hope this helps.
I was told from Betty Crocker that Pillsbury handles the “Cinnamon Bun Cake Mix”. Maybe if you write to them, maybe they could tell you where you can buy it or if they have any in the warehouse. Good luck.
Thanks for the info Barbara!
