Coffee Cake

The sweet aroma flowing through my house right now is a delicious coffee cake baking in the oven.  My husband called me from work yesterday and asked me to send the recipe to his friend stationed in Belgium.  I love sharing my recipes ... especially this one, which is my mom's most famous and highly requested in her repertoire.  This yummy cake is very easy to make and always comes out perfect.  Enjoy!

Mom's Coffee Cake   *Printable Recipe*

1 Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sour cream
4 eggs

4 T brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Combine cake mix, sugar, sour cream, and oil.  Add eggs.  Coat bundt pan with cooking spray.  Sprinkle topping to coat pan.  Pour 1/2 batter in pan.  Sprinkle more topping.  Pour remaining batter.  Sprinkle remaining topping.  Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.

Here's a step-by-step...
Simple ingredients
Batter ready to pour
Spray pan with cooking spray.  Don't be afraid to over-spray so the cake doesn't stick.
Generously sprinkle pan with topping.  This makes a nice crust on the outside of the cake.

Coated and ready for batter

Pour 1/2 batter

Sprinkle about 1/2 of remaining topping

Pour in remaining batter

Sprinkle with remaining topping
Voila --- Enjoy!!
