  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 box instant butterscotch pudding
  • 1 box instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 T melted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans optional


  1. Butter or spray your 9x13 glass dish and preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Mix first six ingredients with a hand mixer or in your stand mixer.
  3. Pour into baking dish.
  4. Combine sugar and butter till crumbly.
  5. Drop on top of coffee cake.
  6. If using pecans, sprinkle on top of coffee cake.
  7. I usually do half with pecans and half without.
  8. But then after you bake it for 35-45 minutes (my oven takes 40 minutes) it will turn into this... amazing goodness. Yum! Enjoy!
