Butterscotch Coffee Cake

This post may contain affiliate links.  For more information, read my disclosure policy here  

My mother-in-law found this recipe in the newspaper.  It seems to be her new go-to recipe.  She’s been making it for a couple of months now.  I love how moist the cake is.  And, anything that includes cinnamon streusel is a winner in my book!

The pudding makes this cake ultra-moist.  And, it’s not too butterscotch-y (yep, that’s a word says I).   Just right!  It goes perfectly with a nice hot cup of coffee!

I did make a few minor adjustments.  I substituted walnuts for the pecans (because I didn’t have any pecans in my pantry).  I also used sugar-free pudding mixes.  You can’t even tell the difference and you’re cutting down the sugar in the cake.

This cake is definitely a keeper — I’ll definitely be adding this to my recipe box!

If you try this recipe, I’d love to know what you thought.  Please post your results here!

  1. I’ve always been taught that if I couldn’t say something nice, then I shouldn’t say anything at all. I like the idea of this cake and it’s flavors. I’m not one to use a lot of processed foods, but I don’t abandon them totally either. I just watch what I use. That’s a personal choice. I’m sorry that you received such a rude comment earlier.

    • I believe it’s 3.4 ounce (regular pudding). I’m not sure what the weight of the SF version is. It’s the smaller/regular size box. I hope this helps, but if you have any other questions, please let met know! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks for reading!
