Easy Coffee Cake

This is an easy cake to make using Duncan Hines yellow cake mix. My family and friends all like and I like because it does not take a long time to put together.

How to Make Easy Coffee Cake


  • 1Preheat oven to 350'
    I use a glass cake pan but use whatever you have. Keep in mind that the baking time will be shorter in a metal pan and you should probably lower oven temp. by 25 degrees.
    Grease a 9x13 pan or
    cover bottom of pan with parchment paper if you have it.
  • 2In a large bowl whip egg whites to a stiff peak and set aside until the cake batter is ready.
  • 3In a separate large bowl mix all other ingredients together and beat until smooth.
  • 4Gently fold egg whites into cake batter by hand.
    Pour into prepared cake pan and bake until done in the center. 40 to 50 minutes. Cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • 5While cake is baking dump the topping ingredients into a food processor and chop until butter is pea size.

    Remove to a bowl and put in the freezer until cake is done.
  • 6When cake is done remove from oven.
    While cake is hot from the oven remove topping from the freezer and sprinkle evenly over the top.
  • 7You can serve this cake warm or cold. Either way you will get many compliments.
