Around our house, the favorite meal is breakfast! There is something about the smell of fresh coffee brewing that is so familiar and comforting first thing in the morning! Fresh eggs, bacon and biscuits? Perfect! And when we have a crowd, I love to add a delicious and buttery coffee cake to top it all off!
This recipe for Buttery Coffee Cake was given to me by a friend about 20 years ago. It is very easy to make and pretty inexpensive too! I like to make it the night before so it is ready to go for breakfast, especially when we have company or around the holidays.
We have some favorite friends coming to spend the night so I decided to make the coffee cake to go along with our breakfast in the morning. My next door neighbors love it too and since school starts tomorrow, I will take over some for them in the morning before school starts.
Buttery Coffee Cake Recipe:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
¾ cup vegetable oil
¾ cup water
1 tsp. Butter Buds butter flavoring
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
Mix all of the above cake mixture ingredients on high for 6-8 minutes. I use my Kitchen Aide mixer. It makes it much easier!
½ cup granulated white sugar
2 ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ cup chopped pecans (optional-I don’t usually add the pecans because my family prefers it without nuts)
Mix together the streusel ingredients and set aside.
1 cup XXX confectioners powdered sugar
½ tsp. Butter Buds butter flavoring
½ tsp. Vanilla flavoring
2 TBSP milk
Mix the glaze ingredients together. This will go on top of the baked coffee cake.

Layer the following streusel and batter:
Pour ½ of Streusel mix in bottom of greased pan
Pour ½ of batter in pan over streusel
Pour other ½ of streusel on top of batter
Top with other ½ of batter
Here is how the coffee cake looks, layered and ready to go in the oven:
BAKE @ 350 degree preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until done
Mix together the glaze and drizzle over top of cooled coffee cake.
Enjoy!! I hope you love it just as much! (I understand this freezes well, too!)
