This is a wonderful coffee cake. Never fails to get request for the recipe. Got it on the web when I first got my computer and didn't think to save the source.

Sara Lee Butter Coffee Cake

1 box yellow cake mix
1 small box of vanilla instant pudding
3/4 c. vegetable oil
3/4 c. water
4 eggs
1 T. butter extract
1 T. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 x 13 baking pan.

Beat cake mix, pudding, water, eggs,and oil 8 minutes at medium speed.
Add butter extract and vanilla.
Pour 1/2 of mixture in buttered 9 x 13 pan.
Mix 1/2 c. sugar and 2 T. cinnamon.(I ALWAYS ADD A HEAPING 1/2 CUP OF PECANS TO THIS MIX) Sprinkle 1/2 mixture over batter in pan. Spread rest of batter and rest of sugar mixture on
top. Swirl knife through. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. I find it takes more like 50 to 60 minutes.)

Drizzle with the following:

1 c. powdered sugar
1 T. hot milk
1/2 tsp. butter extract (I use almond extract here)
1/4 tsp vanilla

This is so moist too
