I love baking, but most of all I love creating new recipes of my own. My family are my "Taste Testers" and love this coffee cake especially for the holidays.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
We just love this light and tasty coffee cake. The extended mixing time may be a bit of work, but the result is worth every minute!

Ingredients

1 box
extra moist yellow cake mix
1 box
instant vanilla pudding (small)
3/4 c
vegetable oil
3/4 c
water
4
eggs
1 Tbsp
each - butter extract/ flavoring and vanilla extract
1/4 c
caramel ice cream topping, heated
STREUSEL MIX
1/4 c
white sugar
1/4 c
packed light brown sugar
1 Tbsp
cinnamon (more if you like more cinnamon flavor)
1/3 c
bisquick® mix
3-4 Tbsp
cold butter, cut into small pieces... (place in freezer to get them cold)
GLAZE
3/4 c
powdered sugar
1-2 Tbsp
hot milk or cream
1 Tbsp
melted butter or ( ½ t. butter extract/flavoring if preferred)
1/3 c
softened cream cheese
1/4 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350. (I use the convection setting which takes off about 10 minutes baking time).
Spray a 9x13-glass(must be glass) baking pan with cooking spray.
Add first 5 ingredients to mixer in order given. Beat exactly 8 minutes at medium speed.
Add butter and vanilla extract.

Pour the batter into oiled pan. Sprinkle the streusel mix over top. Take a knife (I use a chop stick…it works great) and swirl the streusel throughout making sure to go only about 1" deep into the batter by making "S" swirls, and then drizzle the caramel topping over this.
2
Bake @350 on middle rack for 40–45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
After removing from oven, let sit on wire rack for a few minutes.
3
For the glaze
Warm the milk/cream. Whip cream cheese, adding milk/cream, butter/butter extract and powdered sugar, mixing well to blend.
Add vanilla and stir until smooth and creamy.
4
While cake is still quite warm, drizzle with Glaze, then cool completely on rack

Leila,
The cake mix I use is just the extra moist...no pudding in the mix. You could try it and see how it is using it. If you try it let me know how it turns out

This sounds super. Question: Is the "extra moist yellow cake mix" the one with pudding already in the mix? So then are you adding another box of pudding to it? Thanks, can't wait to make this.
