You will hear "yummy" sounds

Today I thought I would share with you my "go to" coffee cake.

It is so simple it is kinda embarrassing, but folks seem to love it regardless.

I made it for the book fair breakfast this morning and as I was leaving with the two little pieces left over, someone stopped me and snagged one of them.

I will be the first to admit this has Sandra Lee written all over it, but it never fails to please and that is really what it's all about.

Enjoy :0)

Super Easy Coffee Cake

for the cake ~

1 box yellow cake mix (I prefer to use Pillsbury ~ super moist and super cheap)

1 C water

1/2 C oil

3 eggs

mix according to directions and pour into a greases 9x13

for the crumb topping ~

1 stick butter softened (I nuc mine for 20 seconds)

1 C brown sugar

1 C oats

1/2 C flour

1 t cinnamon & 1/4 nutmeg (feel free to bump these up according to your preferred taste)

mix until combined and crumbly

Pour the crumb mixture over the cake batter and swirl with a knife.

Bake 34 minutes

The cake will puff up around the crumb topping as it melts into the cake. After it cools you can top it with a basic powder sugar, milk, vanilla glaze.

So simple, but so yummy

I always love to eat something with my coffee, due to the fact that I take my coffee black. So I need something to restore the sweet side in me. This cake looks absolutely lovely and moist. And I bet it tastes even better. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I love simple but great cakes.
