A Wonderfully Easy Hostess Cake

I've decided that if I could pick up a minor in baking here in my last year at PC, that would be ideal.  This week I've made banana bread, cookies, and now tonight one of my favorite treats my mom always makes--Lutheran Coffee Cake.  She always has one made if we have company staying with us.  Now, I realize the title is slightly prejudiced, but what else are you going to call it?  If it was just plain coffee cake, that wouldn't be nearly as enticing as throwing a Lutheran at the beginning.  Tomorrow one of my friends is stopping through Clinton, so I figured I should get my hostess skills on and be ready with a cake, so I called my mom and got the recipe!
Since its late and I have to wake up in the morning to study for a quiz and go to the store to prepare for C5's first week-ishly/monthly Fiesta, I'll go ahead and give you the recipe.  It may involve boxed cake mix, but it tastes far from it.  Mandy is now famous.

Lutheran Coffee Cake
1 stick of butter
1 box yellow cake mix
1 box vanilla pudding
4 eggs
8 oz sour cream
cinnamon sugar

Mix together butter and cake mix and pudding.  Add in eggs and sour cream.  Pour half the batter into a greased cake pan.  Liberally sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the layer.  Pour the remaining batter on top.  Bake at 325 for 40-50 minutes. 

Sidenote: I'm especially thankful for having a professor who I can borrow from.  Thanks to Dr. Davis for the bunt pan!
