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. You mentioned cinnamon in your introduction, but I don’t see it in the recipe. Is there suppose to be cinnamon added to the brown sugar and nuts?

    • No cinnamon in this recipe. But you could add some if you’d like. I’d add 1-2 teaspoons depending on your tastes.

  2. mmmm. butterscotch. nothing like it. i think walnut would pair better than pecans for this…

  4. Looks yummy! I love the idea behind your blog because I HATE trying new recipes. I swear it takes about 10 tries to find one keeper, so thanks for doing all the hard work for us ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. If I try it, I guess my edition would be using muscovado instead of brown sugar, and plain nuts or cashew nuts since I don’t have walnuts nor pecan. ๐Ÿ™‚
