  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan. Make the streusel: In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir in the melted butter. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, water, oil, and eggs. Beat on low speed with an electric mixer just until moistened. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes longer. Spread 1/2 of the batter into a greased 9x13 inch pan. Sprinkle on 1/2 of the streusel mixture. Carefully spread the remaining 1/2 of the cake batter over the streusel, and sprinkle with the remaining streusel.
  3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool slightly, then drizzle with the powdered sugar icing. Best if served warm. Makes 12 to 16 servings.
  4. To make the Icing: In a small bowl, combine confectioners sugar with vanilla and butter flavoring. Add a few drops of water until you achieve drizzling consistency.

DELICIOUS!! Only change I made was omitting the nuts and using cinnamon graham crackers instead of plain. As my family puts it "this is a keeper!!" Thanks for the terrific recipe. :o)

Certainly a pretty cake (almost a guarantee if you use a specialty Bundt pan as I did) but nothing special in taste. (Hubs had a couple of bites and left the rest on his plate. I didn't even ge...

This is absolutely one of the best coffeecakes I've tasted--homemade or otherwise. I cut the amount of butter to one stick, and I use a butter-flavored cake mix and cinnamon graham crackers, and...

Great and Simple! I have made it twice, and both times it was a big hit. It also freezes really well. The streusel call for way too much butter - probably 6 tbsp. would be enough. My streuse...

This recipe was great. I don't like nuts so I changed it a bit... instead of the walnuts I used 1/2 cup rolled oats and increased the butter to a full cup. It was delicious!

This was a very good coffee cake. I had the same problem as some of the other reviewers, where the topping sunk to the bottom. It still tasted very good though. I think next time I may try ad...
