This cake has the delightful Jiffy cake mix as its base.  I love Jiffy mixes because of the size and the simplicity of the preparation.  This coffee cake is easy, too!  I'd love to hear of your favorite Jiffy mixes and recipes!

To make the topping: melt butter in a small skillet. Add brown sugar, nuts and spices. Stir until brown sugar is melted. Pour over the cake top.

It's Foodie Extravaganza Day and this month's theme is Coffee Cake with Caroline from Caroline's Cooking is hosting What is Foodie Extravaganza? It's when a group of bloggers get together and make a recipe using one main ingredient. Where do we get the ingredient? We look at The Nibble and pick something off of their list. Croissants are actually celebrated on January 30th, but it's in January, so it's fair game. You can check out our group Pinterest board for past recipes. If you're a blogger, you can join along with us by requesting to join on our Facebook page. Now, on to the goodness being shared this month:
