This Cinnamon Pecan Breakfast Bundt Cake is an easy breakfast treat. It uses a cake mix as a base, and pudding mix to keep it moist, and an easy cinnamon pecan streusel! 

When we have family visiting us, I prep for huge weekend breakfasts. For my husband’s family, I typically make biscuits and gravy. For my family, we typically do some sort of sweet coffee cake or rolls as well as an egg casserole. I grew up with sweet breakfast, especially my Mom’s coffee cake!

My Mom makes the BEST coffee cake, in my opinion. It’s super crumbly and a family tradition. We typically eat it at Easter brunch and each year, I tell Mom to “make two” so that I can have plenty of seconds!

The last time my parents visited us, I tried out a new coffee cake, this breakfast bundt cake with a cinnamon pecan crumble inside. I loved how easy it was, and I’m in a big bundt cake phase right now. Let’s make bundt cake breakfast a thing!

Baking isn’t my favorite, so I love to use cake mixes whenever I can. I even put together a list of my FAVORITE creative ways to use cake mix a while back. This breakfast bundt cake starts with a butter cake mix then adds vanilla instant pudding mix and a few baking staples. 

My favorite part of this breakfast bundt cake is the cinnamon swirl that you add in!

The frosting on this is what I call the “standard” icing in our family. We put it on everything. Cookies. Turnovers. Cake. Breakfast Bundt Cake! 🙂 It’s very simple, with just three ingredients! Powdered sugar, vanilla and milk.

I added my frosting to a small ziploc bag and cut the corner off the bag so I could attempt to “artfully” drizzle it over the top of the cake. I had mixed results, but get an A for effort, right?
