coffee cake recipe instruction

    1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
    2. Beat together cake mix, pudding, oil, sour cream, and eggs for 10 minutes. (Use a stand mixer if you can – the batter becomes very thick and hard to manage. A hand mixer will work too, but you’ll need some muscle.) Fold the cherries into the batter.
    3. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugars, cinnamon, and orange zest. Set aside 3 Tablespoons; fold the rest into the batter and pour it into an ungreased 9×13 baking dish.
    4. Sprinkle the remaining sugar mix over top of the cake batter. Bake for one hour.

    This coffee cake will not disappoint you. It is without a doubt the best coffee cake you will ever eat. Much better that anything you can buy. It definitely is a keeper for all times. Moist, great taste and serves alot of people. Great for breakfast or try as a desert with ice cream.
