I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Cast Iron Cake Mix Coffee Cake

If you're looking for a coffee cake with perfect texture and don't want to bother with a scratch cake recipe then this is the recipe for you!


1 cup flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup chopped apples (optional)

1 yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla

First mix up the crumble.  Whisk the flour, brown sugar, sugar, salt and cinnamon together. Then cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender or knife. When the mixture is peamealy toss in the walnuts and chopped apple if using.
Set aside.
Mix the batter ingredients together. It will be thick.
Grease a 9" cast iron pan then put half the batter in the bottom. Top with half the crumble mixture then the other half of the batter. Because the batter is thick you'll have to spoon out and spread it carefully but the effort is worth it.
Finally end with the remaining crumble. I thought the crumble was very dry and didn't expect it to bake up right...but it did!

Bake in a 350 F oven for 60-70 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

Serves 10-12
