Yummy cake! I used chopped walnuts, and added a few to the topping as well. This went so fast! A neighbor was here and had a piece, loved it, and said it would be good with a chocolate cake mix too, humm, might be worth a try. Great recipe, crawfish pie! Thanks!!
A very good cake. However, it does make two cakes if baked in the 8" pans. I would also maybe cut the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture in half as it seemed a little overwhelming. Excellent texture, very moist cake. Took it to a church potluck & everyone loved it!
Everyone loved this cake. I couldn't keep people out of it, so we would have some for dessert. Try this cake, your family will love you for it!
I made mine in a bundt pan too. I put half the brown sugar mix in between two layers of the batter, then the rest on the top. I swirled it in some. For the icing, I just mixed powdered sugar with the milk and vanilla. It was soooo good!!!
Made this for Father's Day...it is now one of my FAVORITE cakes ever!! Brought back memories of Sunday mornings with my dad eating cinnamon rolls :) Sooooo yummy!!! I also made it a bundt pan, like another reviewer. I sprayed the bundt pan with pam, sprinkled abut a 1/4 of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture into the pan, then poured the cake mix on top of that. (So the brown sugar/cinnamon would be on top of the cake!) I then put the rest of the brown sugar/cinn on the cake mixture and swirled it with a knife. The amount of cake mixture was perfect in the bundt pan- it rose up just perfectly! I did have to bake it for about 50 minutes...I checked it every 5 minutes after 30. I also ommitted nuts, but it didn't effect it at all! AMAZING cake!!!
This cake was absolutely delicious! My whole family raved over it. So moist and yummy. Thanks for posting this recipe.
A winner of a coffee cake recipe. I used a white cake mix. I baked mine in a bundt pan for about 40 minutes. I cooled the cake completely before putting the icing on it. I added about 1/2 t. vanilla extract to the icing. I did not poke holes in the cake, just iced the top. It is a super sweet coffee cake so it tastes great with either a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee.
This is a must for the sweet tooth in your family. It was always a gift to my son from a neighbor. This is the first time I have made it and it's just like I remember. I did make two 8" cakes and sprinkled the topping but I think next time I'll try to put the topping in the middle. Wonderful for breakfast, snack or dessert!
I made 2 8" layers and one is going to the hostess of today's dinner. This is a great coffee cake, moist and tasty! So easy to make. Thanks for sharing crawfish pie. Those old church cookbooks hold a lot of treasures, don't they?
Oh so good. Great texture and so easy to make. Family loved this. I will be making this again. thanks for the great recipe!
