Can’t Resist Coffee Cake

This is an old standby coffee cake recipes that comes from my friend Sandy Parker’s mother’s bridge group. She says they go crazy over this one. If you have a stand mixer, it’s easy to make. Otherwise, I can’t imagine having the patience to mix the batter for 10 minutes.

Serves 12

Batter:
1 package yellow cake mix
1 pkg. instant vanilla pudding (3.4 oz size)
5 eggs
3/4 cups Canola oil
1 cup water

Topping:
1/2 cup sugar
5 t. cinnamon
1 cup walnuts, chopped

Mix batter for 10 minutes. Prepare (mix) the topping (sugar, cinnamon and nuts) in a small bowl. Butter your bundt pan. Pour 1/4 topping into the pan add 1/3 of the batter add 1/2 of the topping-stir with knife to “swirl” rotate with batter and topping. Bake at 325 for 55-60 minutes.
