You won't feel guilty eating cake for breakfast when it's made with Cinnamon Toast Crunch. The cereal adds the crunchiness, while vanilla pudding and pie filling ups the creamy quotient in the moist yellow cake.

Water, butter and eggs called for on cake mix box
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1
teaspoon vanilla

1
cup coarsely crushed Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ cereal
1
tablespoon sugar
2
tablespoons butter, melted

box (6-serving size) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
3

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2 Make and bake cake as directed on box, using water, butter and eggs and adding cinnamon and vanilla.
  • 3 While cake is baking, in small bowl, mix Cereal Crumble ingredients. Spread in ungreased shallow baking pan; set aside.
  • 4 Remove cake from oven to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes. Place cereal crumble in oven; bake at 350°F for 7 minutes. When baked, remove from pan to paper towels or flat paper bag.
  • 5 When cake has cooled 5 minutes, with handle of wooden spoon (1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter), poke holes almost to bottom of cake every 1/2 inch, wiping spoon handle occasionally to reduce sticking.
  • 6 In medium bowl, stir together Filling ingredients (mixture will thicken). Pour over cake; spread evenly over surface, working back and forth to fill holes. (Some filling should remain on top of cake.) Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • 7 Spread whipped topping evenly over cake. Immediately before serving, sprinkle crumble over top.
