Butterscotch Pecan Coffee Cake

Butterscotch Pecan Coffee Cake

This little recipe will make you look forward to getting out of bed!  It is such a simple, quick recipe, with ingredients that are easy to keep on hand in your pantry.  This is one of the best things Queenie (my mom) made when we were growing up- I wish I could remember which neighbor or friend she got the recipe from, but for now I will credit her for the inspiration.   We grew up outside of Philly, where we had real weather compared to where I live now, in Orlando.  This Butterscotch Pecan Coffee Cake was perfect for both a chilly fall day treat and a snow day snack, unbelievably moist and delicious!

Coffee Cake Mise en Place

Butterscotch Pecan Coffee Cake

  • 1 box Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1- 3.4 oz box Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
  • 1- 3.4 oz box Instant Butterscotch Pudding Mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup water

Crumble Topping

  • 2 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (Use what ever you have lying around)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

    The first layer of batter

Adding the crumble topping to the first layer of batter

Preheat oven to 350°, be sure to adjust oven racks so the center rack is free to use and that there is no rack above as the cake will rise quite a bit.  Mix all the cake ingredients together in a bowl.  Mix all the crumble topping together in a separate bowl.  Pour half of the cake batter into a greased (pan spray is fine) 9×12 baking pan, and sprinkle half of the crumble on top.  Pour remaining batter into pan and sprinkle with the remaining crumble.  Bake for 45-60 minutes, until the center is cooked.

Sweet goodness, right out of the oven!!!!!!

Because the cake is so moist, it will taste great all week long,…. if it lasts!
