Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9"x 13" baking pan with nonfat cooking spray. For topping, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, nuts and cinnamon in small bowl. Add butter, stir until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

For coffee cake, combine pancake mix and sugar in large bowl; mix well. In medium bowl, combine sour cream, milk, oil, egg and vanilla with wire whisk; add to dry ingredients. Mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Batter will be thick. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm.

Variation: To use Aunt Jemima(r) Complete or Buttermilk Complete Pancake & Waffle Mix, decrease vegetable oil in coffee cake to 1 Tbs. and proceed as recipe directs.

  • I just made this and I put the topping on before I baked it and patted it down just slightly. I also finely chopped a Granny Smith apple instead of blueberries and yummmmm!

  • If anyone has tried this Please comment. Never have baked with pancake mix. To answer comment below..add the crumb mixture after while still warm; can also put back in oven for a few minutes to set the crumb mixture.

  • This recipe sounds wonderful but when do you add the topping? Before you start baking, halfway through, when? Thank you.
