Ultimate Coffee Cake Recipe by Paula Deen

Level: Easy

Time: 40 MINUTES

2 ratings


  • 16 to 18 unbaked frozen dinner rolls
  • 1 (3 oz) package regular butterscotch pudding mix, not instant
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


The night before place frozen rolls in well greased Bundt pan. Sprinkle dry pudding mix over rolls. Sprinkle brown sugar over pudding mix. Sprinkle chopped pecans over brown sugar. Pour melted butter over all. To prevent the dough from forming a hard crust while its rising overnight, cover with a damp towel or tightly wrap with plastic wrap. Let rise overnight at room temperature, about 8 to 10 hours.


Preheat oven to 350°.


Bake in oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Turn pan over onto a serving platter to remove. Serve by pulling apart chunks with forks.

I have made this

I have made this for years, decades , I guess. My mom used to make this, too. She got the recipe from a friend. Nice to see Paula having old favorites out for new people to discover. Better than the tube biscuit rolls recipes. You can use other nuts if you are out of pecans, but they make it taste more buttery.
