Cake Mix Coffee Cake

One of my favorite flavors of fall is cinnamon.  Over at Your Homebased Mom we love cinnamon rolls, cinnamon cookies and even cinnamon ice cream!

I also love Cinnamon Coffee Cake. It’s perfect for breakfast, brunch or just a yummy treat.

This recipe is easy and delicious thanks to the help of a cake mix and some instant pudding mix. The pudding mix helps make the coffee cake nice and moist and tender. It can be made in a bundt cake pan or a 9 x 13 pan.

Mix together the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil and water and layer half of it in your pan. Then sprinkle it with half of a brown sugar, and cinnamon mixture and repeat the process.

After you pull it out of the oven, while it is still warm, drizzle it with a powdered sugar glaze.

I’m not a coffee drinker so I prefer a glass of ice cold milk with my cinnamon coffee cake.

Cinnamon milk cake just doesn’t sound quite as good, does it!?
