"This sounds wonderful, however, as of 2017 there are no longer cake mixes in 18 ounces size, There is one exception. If you use two Jiffy cake mixes they will equal 18 ozs. Pillsbury needs to revise their wonderful recipes to fit the current times!"

"I make this for my husband, who has Celiac, with a gluten-free yellow cake mix, and gluten-free graham cracker crumbs. I also bake it in a bundt pan for a more beautiful presentation. So delicious!"

"I made this b4 reading the reviews. I used yellow cake mix calling for oil. The nut mixture did sink so next time I will try cooking without the nut top layer.for 20 min and then add the top layer of nuts in the final 20 min of cooking. I also used two tsp of cinnamon. And walnuts i/o pecans."

"This was really yummy! It was relatively easy to make, and I loved the graham cracker filling/topping. It's a great addition to a breakfast or brunch or at coffee or dessert time."

"I omitted the nuts and icing and took this to a baby shower. It was good, but not outstanding (it was plenty sweet, so I do not think we would have enjoyed it more with the icing). However, it was done in 30 min! I am glad I checked the cake box. 40 minutes seemed too long."

"If you bake this the night before you serve it, will it still be tasty & moist?"

"Good, quick, easy cake. My cake baked for less than 40 minutes though. And I would agree with the other reviews in decreasing the butter to 1/2 cup."

"I made this as a treat for my husband's fellow tennis players--of course, I had a piece myself (always have to taste new recipes). I used a 9 x 13 pan and cut it into 28 pieces. It took exactly 40 minutes to bake. I was very disappointed when he came home with an empty pan (no leftovers for me)--he said they loved this coffee cake. I really hate the taste of powdered sugar in icing so I made the icing much better by adding a little melted butter, vanilla, and using some left over whipping cream instead of milk--really good icing with no powdered sugar taste. I also added a little extra cinnamon to the topping (love it). I used a yellow cake mix from Aldi's that used oil in the mix (not butter) and had no problem with the topping sinking to the bottom--instead it all rose to the top which was fine."

"Delicious, quick and easy! I made this in advance and froze it to serve at a continental breakfast I catered and it was enjoyed by all. I had lots of graham cracker crumbs on hand (clearance sale at Target--LOL!) and this was a great way to use some of them!"
