Coconut-Pecan Coffee Cake

Yes, I still have FALL on my mind......with Fall comes pecans, pumpkins and usually, MUCH cooler weather! 
Who doesn't love a good coffee cake?!  This one has a nice level of coconut flavor from the pudding mix. 

Coconut-Pecan Coffee Cake

1 pkg. (18 1/4 oz.) yellow cake mix
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) instant coconut cream pudding mix
1 tsp. vanilla extract


1/2 C chopped pecans
1/3 C sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon


1 C confectioners' sugar
1 to 2 Tbsp. milk
12 tsp. vanilla extract

Prepare cake mix batter according to package directions, adding pudding mix and vanilla; set aside.  combine the pecans, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Spread half the cake batter into a greased 13" x 9" baking pan.  Sprinkle with half of filling.  Top with remaining batter and filling.
Bake at 350 degrees for 34-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool on a wire rack.  Combine the glaze ingredients in a small bowl until smooth.  Drizzle over warm coffee cake.
