Julie's Easy Coffee Cake

Bible studies are so good!

Especially the Bible studies where ladies bring snacks;
because they bring their "best" snacks!

This little gem showed up at our Bible study one morning and it was gone in a flash!

Like -- a real quick flash!

I didn't have any, that morning anyway, but everyone was talking about how yummy it was!

The little hostess with the mostest jotted the recipe off in a flash and lucky you, I'm passing it along!

On a personal note, I know my friend Julie, who doesn't cook, is going to see this and think I'm talking about her . . .because she's trying to become all domesticated in the kitchen this year . . . but it's not "your" coffee cake Julie -- it's the other Julie from Bible study!  You can't steal her thunder!  I won't allow it!

Julie's Easy Coffee Cake

1 box of yellow cake mix
3 eggs, beaten
1 can of apple pie filling, (or any pie filling; I've done it with apple and peach)**
2T softened butter
1+ cup of chopped pecans (I use 1 -1 1/2 cups)
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
Mix the cake mix, eggs and pie filling together in a bowl, being careful not to break up the fruit too much, but making sure you've got it all mixed up!  Pour into a 9X13 pan that's been sprayed with Pam.
For the topping**:
Mix  the butter, pecans, brown sugar and white sugar together and sprinkle on top of cake batter.
(I made this again recently and I didn't have pecans to put in the topping so I mixed the butter, sugars and then added a heaping 1/3 cup of old fashioned oats to the mix.  It was fantastic!)

Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until done.  (The recipe says 30 minutes, but mine have never been done in that amount of time . . . so you be the judge!)


**I've made it with blackberry pie filling.  The boy cherub and the Mr. really like it . . .but it looks kind of gross, but it does taste good!  So, if you're taking it someplace and you really want to impress, stay away from the blackberry choice!  The Mr.'s secretary said, "I'll just eat with my eyes closed!"
