Cake for breakfast, what a wonderful start to a lazy Sunday, lovely with your morning coffee. Not too complicated, just a few ingredients added to a store bought cake mix. Really perfect for a quick impromptu dessert or after school snack. I guess you could call this the perfect anytime treat.
Cinnamon Coffee Cake
1 yellow cake mix prepared according to package directions, reserving 1 cup of batter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup chopped pecans or sliced almonds
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup cream cheese frosting
Combine 1 cup of reserved batter with brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Stir until well combined. Pour plain cake batter into greased 13″ x 9″ baking pan. Drop spoonfuls of cinnamon batter evenly over cake batter. With a knife or spatula, swirl cinnamon batter through cake batter. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted, comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes. Heat cream cheese frosting in microwave for 20 seconds, stir and pour over warm cake, spreading to cover cake completely. Serve warm or at room temperature.
