The pudding in the cake makes it stay nice and moist. And the toppings and spices make it have the taste of a traditional coffee cake.
The first thing you will want to do is get your ingredients ready and measured out. Here is a list of the ingredients you will need to make this coffee cake:
1 box of your favorite yellow cake mix
1 small box of instant vanilla pudding
1 small box of instant butterscotch pudding
4 large eggs
1 cup plus one tablespoon of vegetable oil
¾ cup of water
1 tightly packed cup of brown sugar
1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
1 cup of finely chopped nuts
After you have all the ingredients measured out, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, in a medium size mixing bowl, begin by mixing together your yellow cake mix and your vanilla and butterscotch puddings. When well mixed, add your eggs and your vegetable oil. Mix these in by hand and then add your three quarter cup of water and your nuts. Mix all this very well.
Divide the dough in half and spread one half into a well greased nine by thirteen inch pan. Spread evenly across the bottom of the pan. Then in a small mixing bowl, combine your brown sugar and cinnamon with a fork. When evenly mixed, divide in half and sprinkle half of the sugar over the dough in the pan. Then spread the remaining dough over the sugar and top with the rest of your sugar and cinnamon.
Bake at 350 degrees for fifty minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. This coffee cake is good no matter what the occasion! Serve with hot coffee, tea or cold milk.
