Pull Apart Coffee Cake

Pull Apart Coffee Cake
Absolutley delicious!

Very simple to assemble and lovely presentation.

Perfect for taking to a brunch or serving to your own family, this yummy pull-apart bread is always a big hit!

Servings: 8


  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen bread rolls, still frozen (I use Bridgeford's Parker House Yeast Roll Dough)

  • 1 stick (4oz.) butter

  • 1 (3 5/8 ounce) package butterscotch pudding mix

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • Chopped nuts, (optional)

Spray a bundt pan with non-stick spray. Sprinkle bottom of pan with chopped nuts if desired. Place rolls individually in pan. Melt butter and pour over rolls. Mix the dry pudding mix and brown sugar together. Pour this mixture over the frozen rolls and melted butter. Let the rolls rise overnight on countertop or cold (turned off) oven. This is necessary as the frozen rolls will need several hours to defrost and rise. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 C) for 20 minutes. When done, remove from oven and let sit 10 minutes. Invert onto serving plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes 8 rolls.

*Variation: You may use 1 1/4 cups melted butter, vanilla pudding mix, 4 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup chopped nuts.

Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, sprinkle pecans in two greased 9-in. round cake pans.
