Quick Coffee Cake

This coffee cake is a recipe that my mom has been making for years. Whenever we would have company come into town, a get together with family friends, etc., this cake would be made. It has always been a huge hit with everyone and received tons of praise!! Not only is it simple to make, but it is a moist, flavorful cake as well. It makes a great breakfast, snack, or dessert and goes great with a cup of coffee!!


1 box yellow cake mix
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup nuts (chopped)
1 tsp cinnamon


In a bowl, beat together the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, nuts, and cinnamon. Grease a bundt pan and pour the batter and cinnamon mixture in layers, ending with the cinnamon mixture on top. Bake in a preheated oven, 350, for 40-60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean once inserted.

    Hi Margie,
    Depending on the recipe you have for the homemade yellow cake, prepare the yellow cake mix adding only the dry ingredients. Once you have the yellow cake, then you can move on using the original coffee cake recipe. The only wet ingredient you should use from the yellow cake recipe is the vanilla, 🙂
    Let us know how it turns out! I have never tried it that way, but see no reason why it wouldn’t work, 🙂
