Doesn’t that sound like a wonderful combination? I found a new coffee that I like. Cameron’s Chocolate Caramel Brownie. It might be the only coffee we brew at Loopy Central from now on, as we’re pretty much all in agreement that it’s wonderful. This morning, I brought in a coffee cake, still warm from the oven. It just seemed like the right thing to do, given that it’s cold and rainy and will be turning to snow in a couple of hours. And you know what that means? Hunkering down in my warm house tonight with a pile of knitting and a list of good movies to watch. And maybe another cup of that coffee. I’m sure WH will be in agreement.
1 (18 oz) white or yellow cake mix
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups chopped pecans
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9 x 13 pan.
Combine cake mix, oil, eggs and sour cream and beat for 2 minutes at slow speed with a mixer.
Mix sugar, cinnamon and pecans in a separate bowl.
Pour 1/2 of the batter into the pan. Top with 1/2 of the pecan/sugar/cinnamon mix. Spread 1 cup of chocolate chips on top of nuts (if desired). Add the rest of the batter and top with the remaining pecan/sugar/cinnamon mix.
Bake for 40 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean.
