Goode & Gooseberry Project: Simple Citrus Coffee Cake

 Nov. 7: (I missed yesterday) I am thankful that when Miss Add told me that she had 2 Gilberts that she was just make believin' and hadn't really found Mommy out...or was she just trying to tell me that she is cool with the idea???

Nov. 8: I am thankful for date nights.

Today's Goode & Gooseberry Patch Project Recipe is Simple Citrus Coffee Cake.

Because I just love gadgets, I picked up this super cool whisk-sh scraper thingie and just had to use it.

Never mind that I have a very lovely Kitchen Aid Mixer... I wanted to use my new super cool whisk-sh scraper thingie...

Anyhoo, I took a white cake mix

And 2 1/2 teaspoons of yeast (or 1 pkt for you non-bulk folks)

Tossed in 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of water

and 1/4 (or looks like I accidentally used 1/3...oops!) of OJ...

Whisk, mix, scrape. Whisk, mix, scrape. Whisk, mix, scrape. 

Lovin' the super cool whisk-sh scraper thingie

Pour half into a SPRAYED Bunt pan (turns out it is very important to spray it real GOODe... just sayin')

Now mix up 1/2 cup of flour

With 1 Cup Brown Sugar

1 T Cinnamon

And 1/4 Cup of Softened... err Melted Butter and mix'er up real GOODe.

Then sprinkle on top (and forget to take a picture) and then add the second half of your batter.

Now pop in a 350 degree oven for 30- 40 minutes

Then flip

And there you have it... 

Bundt fail.

"Oh, no!"

"What's wrong?"

"Puddie... I broke my bundt!"


"My bundt... my bundt! Ya know, like on My Big Fat Greek Wedding... my bundt cake!"

"Oh... well put some icing on it and no one will know the difference..." (Surprised he didn't suggest Windex...lol!)

"Nope... I don't think it helped... Think I should get some flowers for it like in the movie?"


Then I realized I didn't have any of said flowers... so I improvised... I just cut 'er up before the meeting.

I've told you before that Martha doesn't live here ;)

That reminds me, I really should rent that movie sometime soon... I totally heart it!

Enjoy and GOODe Luck!

    5 GOODe Thoughts:

    Orange and coffee.....PERFECTION


    Try "My Life in Ruins" with the same actress whose name I will NOT attempt to spell! It's great and so was your cake! Thanks for sharing it with us!

    This looks great! I need to get a bundt pan so I can try it! LOL on the movie reference : )

    Yes, every single time I hear the word 'bundt,' I think of that movie!! LOL I'm looking forward to making this recipe for two main reasons: 1. I LOVE citrus and 2. I like baking things in my bundt pan! Thanks.
