Graham Streusel Coffee Cake

I had another holiday potluck to bake for, and it was the kind of thing that would be munched on throughout the day. I decided to make a coffee cake and found one that was a *bit* more involved than my last one, although since it has a cake mix base, it was rather simple. The streusel was delicious.

I didn't make the drizzle, but there were several comments on the recipe about additions to give the drizzle more body and flavor.

The cake also stayed extremely moist during the day-long potluck.

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon milk


1. Combine the first five ingredients; set aside.

2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions.

3. Pour half of the batter into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with half of the graham cracker mixture. Carefully spoon the remaining batter on top. Sprinkle with the remaining graham cracker mixture.

4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

5. Combine confectioners' sugar and milk; drizzle over cake.




YUM! I wish I was back to working full time so I had someone to bake for and somewhere to take it! Looks delicious.
