Tonight my sweet Dad was up for supper as he does at least one night a week. With my Mom now gone, we try to make sure Dad comes up to visit since so many of his meals he eats by himself. I always try to send him home with lots of leftovers, and if I have time, some quick dessert.
Tonight, I looked in my cupboard and saw that I had a yellow cake mix. I Googled "recipes with yellow cake mix" and saw cookies you can make with a cake mix, which I've done recently (and were tasty) but then I saw a coffee cake recipe.....now that sounded real tasty. I've never made coffee cake before.
I do easy recipes. Ones that my picky kids and hubby will eat. This one seemed easy enough from All Recipes.com:
This is how mine turned out:
I did not have butterscotch pudding mix, but did have 2 boxes of vanilla, so that is what I used. I was going to add some rum extract, but forgot. I think that would have made it even better. It's super yummy...I've had 2 pieces already and may eat the ones on this plate, too.
This will be my new go-to recipe for breakfast on holiday mornings or when I need to make a dish for someone. This made a 13x9 pan, but could probably be divided into 2 smaller pans to give one away. (but why would you want to do that??) By the way, All Recipes is one of my favorite sites to get easy, family-friendly recipes from that have user reviews and ratings (which I am addicted to reading). This coffee cake got 4 1/2 stars. I give it 5!
