Recipe Ingredients for Coffee Cake


For the cake:
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
18 1/2 ounce ) box yellow cake mix
6 ounce instant Jell-O pudding
1 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
3/4 cup hot water
4 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

For the Brown Sugar Icing:
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/10 cup flour
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 ounce whiskey
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Coffee Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Grease and lightly flour a 9 by 13-inch pan. Set aside.

  3. To make the cake, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and walnuts (if using) in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Set the bowl aside. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream and hot water. Mix well. Your mixture will be thick. Beat in the eggs, vegetable oil and extracts until very few lumps remain.

  4. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle all of the brown sugar mixture over the cake batter. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips, or whatever topping you?ve chosen. Carefully spread the remaining batter over the brown-sugar and chocolate chip mixture. With a butter knife, spread and swirl the cake batter and brown sugar mixture.

  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove the cake form the oven and cool slightly.

  6. To make the icing, combine the sugar and the flour in a bowl. Set the bowl aside. Over medium heat, melt the butter in a medium-sized, heavy saucepan. Whisk the flour and sugar mixture into the melted butter until the mixture becomes moistened. The mixture will appear to separate from the butter. Decrease the heat to low and keep stirring, it will come together after about 2 minutes, becoming slightly stringy.

  7. Stir in the milk. Raise the heat to medium and cook until the mixture becomes thick and smooth, stirring frequently. It will look like gravy. Remove from heat. Add the splash of whiskey and vanilla extract. Let cool to lukewarm and drizzle over warm coffee cake.
