Crumbling Wall Coffee Cake

(6 servings)

  • 1 and 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) butter - melted
  • 1/2 cup maple sugar
  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup self-rising pancake mix
Heat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium-sized bowl mix together 1/2 cup melted butter, maple sugar, and bread crumbs. Press mixture against the bottom and sides of a 1-quart ring mold.

In another bowl break the egg and add the white sugar. Beat until fluffy. Add the milk and pancake mix to the egg-and-sugar mixture. Stir lightly until all ingredients are combined. Stir in 3 Tablespoons of melted butter. Pour the entire mixture on top of the maple sugar mixture already in the ring mold.

Bake for 25 minutes. Let the cake cool 5 minutes before you turn it upside down on a warm platter and let it fall away from the mold. It tastes best when served warm.

According to The Nancy Drew Cookbook, a detective needs energy - add more protein. Mix 1/2 cup of finely chopped pecans to the maple sugar mixture.
