Dressed Up Cake Mix

Ok, I typically do not use mixes. I prefer to make everything from scratch. But ya get pressed for time and need something special, you can dress up a cake mix into something extra good. It’s easy, time saving, and no one knows you used a mix.

I made an amazing coffee cake in my handy dandy bundt pan with a mix just this morning. And it is awesome!

Dump 1 box butter flavor cake mix in a mixing bowl. Add 4 eggs, 3/4C oil, 1/2C sugar, and 1/2C sour cream, and 2t vanilla. Beat on low speed until moistened, then medium speed for 2-3 minutes.

In a separate bowl, mix 3T packed brown sugar, 2t white sugar, and 2t cinnamon. If you are adventurous add 1/4t nutmeg. Mix well.

Spray a 10 inch bundt pan with baking spray. Heat oven to 325 F. Pour half of batter into pan. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture evenly over batter in pan, and cover with remaining batter.

Put in oven and bake 55 min or til golden and the toothpick test comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack 10 min, and then turn out onto rack to cool completely. Slide cake onto a plate and dust with sifted confectioners sugar.

Easy as can be, and I have a delicious coffee cake for company this afternoon. (I’m getting my roots done this morning so I’m really pressed for time!)

I hope you make this easy but special cake when you need something quick!


Love, Grammy ❤
