Graham Streusel Coffee Cake

Graham Streusel Coffee Cake

INGREDIENTS

  •  1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (see Note)
  •  3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  •  3/4 cup chopped pecans
  •  2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  •  2/3 cup butter , melted
  •  1 (15.25-oz) package yellow cake mix (and ingredients called for on the package such as eggs and oil)
  •  1 cup powdered sugar
  •  1 tablespoon milk

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 baking pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon. Stir in butter; set aside.
  3. Prepare cake mix according to package directions.
  4. Pour half of the batter into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake for 5 minutes so that the streusel doesn’t sink to the bottom. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with half of the graham cracker mixture.
  5. Carefully spoon the remaining batter on top. This is tricky but it’s very forgiving. Sprinkle with the remaining graham cracker mixture.
  6. Bake at 350° for 25-35 more minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  7. For the glaze: combine powdered sugar and milk; add more milk 1 tablespoon at a time to desired consistency. Drizzle over cooled coffee cake.
