Betty Crocker Cinnabon Coffee Cake

We're studying the book of James this month in Sunday school. 
Part of our focal passages for the day was James 1:2-4:

 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 

I am afraid I still have much maturing to do!  
I like this quote from C.S. Lewis:

“If you think of this world as a place intended simply for our happiness, you find it quite intolerable: think of it as a place of training and correction and it’s not so bad.” 
~C.S. Lewis 

 I've always liked this movie quote:
"Life is like a box of chocolates.  You never know what you're gonna get."
~ Forrest Gump's momma

 Betty Crocker Cinnabon Coffee Cake

I made this easy coffee cake for Sunday school this morning.  I have often made Cinnamon Pecan Muffins using this mix and thought I'd try making a Bundt coffee cake.  I thought it turned out well. It was moist and made for a tasty little breakfast. It would work great for dessert, too! 

Betty Crocker Cinnabon Cinnamon Streusel 
Premium Muffin and Quick Bread Mix

I preheated my oven to 350 degrees and coated my Bundt pan with cooking spray.  I "dusted" the Bundt pan with sugar and set it aside.
I used 2 boxes of Betty Crocker Cinnabon Cinnamon Streusel Premium Muffin and Quick Bread Mix and double the ingredients called for when making one box.  I poured half the batter into my Bundt pan and sprinkled both envelopes of dry topping mix (included in the box) over it.  I added the rest of the batter and baked the cake for about an hour.  I spooned the following glaze over the cake:

Whisk together 2 tablespoons of milk, 1 tablespoon melted butter and 1 cup confectioners' sugar.

This mix if often on sale, and there are many times coupons for Betty Crocker Muffin Mixes, too. I try to keep at least a couple of boxes of this mix in my pantry.

  1. Mmmmmm--I'm going to have to try this. Sometimes I think scratch is better than box mix, so I don't try the mix. It looks wonderful. (Though I'd rather have BC blueberry muffins than ones from scratch!)

    Thanks, Connie. And I like to be reminded that perseverance isn't a bad thing.
