Rita’s Coffee Cake

From : Rita Burke, Cape Girardeau MO


3/4 cup of Sugar

2 teaspoons of Cinnamon

(Mix together in a small bowl and set aside)


1 cup of pecans (chop and set aside, Not to fine)

1 box of Yellow Cake Mix

1 small box of vanilla instant pudding mix

1 cup of Sour Cream

1/2 cup of vegetable oil

4 eggs

Mix the above 5 ingredients together in large mixing bowl. Then beat for 8 minutes. It is important to beat for the full 8 minutes as it changes the texture of the dough,

Pour about 1/3 of the dough in a 10-inch tube or Bundt pan that has been buttered (I sprayed mine well with Pam) Sprinkle on about 1/4 Cup of the sugar mixture. Then sprinkle about 1/4 Cup of the pecans on top of the sugar mixture. Then pull a knife through the mixture,

Repeat the above procedure one more time using 1/2 of the remaining dough.

Then pour the remaining dough on top adding the last 1/4 of sugar mixture and pecans.

Place in a 325-degree oven and bake for 1 hour.

This is an extra good cake, very moist.
