Along with delectable, this coffee cake was uber-moist on the inside and there was NEVER a mere crumb leftover. Most of the R.C.I.A. folks entered the building salivating at the thought of getting a slice of Jennifer's cake!
Now I know some people hoard their recipes, losing sight of the truth and beauty within tattered index card that lives inside of their recipe box... the beauty of living on - being able to sit at a table of future generations even when you are long gone. The one and only Billy Joel sings:
"Someday your child will cry and if you sing this lullaby
Then in your heart there will always be a part of me.
Someday we'll all be gone
But lullabies go on and on
They never die that's how you and I will be."
I think lullabies and recipes go hand in hand.
So, because Jennifer Zurovek shared with me...
I bring you - The Zurovek Coffee Cake (though she just called it coffee cake!)
- 1/2 c oil
- 4 large eggs
- 1 small (8 oz. container) sour cream
- 1 box Duncan Hines Yellow Butter Golden cake mix
- 1 small package vanilla instant pudding mix
Spray bundt pan with Baker's Joy or grease and flour the pan manually.
Pour half of the batter into the pan, then add a layer of:
- 1/2 to 3/4 c brown sugar (or I call it brown sugah!)
- cinnamon to taste
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 35-40 minutes. (Adjust baking time per your oven.)
It is totally worth it to just go ahead and copy/paste this to a word doc, print it out and glue it to an index card and toss it in your recipe box - and go ahead and put the Duncan Hines mix, the instant pudding, and the sour cream on your shopping list. (I gather that eggs, oil, brown sugar, and cinnamon are a staple in your home.) Trust me on this!
