I’ve made Coffee Cake lots of times in the past, but I have never actually put coffee in the cake. You see, I’m more of a tea drinker myself, so it never really occurred to me to add coffee. And even though there is coffee in this Coffee Cake, it really doesn’t taste like coffee. Doug on the other hand is a coffee lover, and he was anxious to give this Cinnamon Pecan Coffee Cake a try.

The verdict…two thumbs up from him and the boys!

The cake is moist and has a rich flavor. And the addition of cinnamon and pecans is perfect.

This Cinnamon Pecan Coffee Cake starts with a cake mix, making it super easy and quick to toss together. Just like a regular cake mix, you will need eggs and oil, instead of the liquid in the cake mix, you simply add coffee. Top it off with a combination of brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans.

    I would love to try this recipe but want to omit the coffee. Please tell me what to use instead. Have enjoyed finding your site. Thanks so much.

    1. Hi Alice, you could use water, I’m not sure that it will have the flavor it does. If you are concerned about the taste, it doesn’t taste like coffee. I don’t drink or like coffee and I liked this cake.
      Happy Baking!
