Ooey Gooey Ultimate Coffee Cake

How has it been this long? In between delicious meals, I have been grading papers, planning for the end of my first year of teaching (how did that happen?) and finding a few minutes to spend with the hubs. But summer is around the corner, my friends, and although I have discovered first-hand the many challenges of education, I am about to enjoy the biggest perk. Summer vacation will definitely allow for more blogging, so I hope you're hungry.

On to the food! As far as breakfasts go, I am typically more of a savory person (breakfast tacos, eggs benedict, etc.) than sweet. So much so that it took a little convincing from my mother to give this recipe for the Ultimate Coffee Cake a try. "You'll LOVE it!" she kept insisting...

So, when my friend Andi was in town for a visit a few weeks ago, we gave it a whirl and all saltiness aside, this sticky pull-apart is the sweetest breakfast ever. Not just because it is incredibly delicious, but it is the easiest thing I've ever made (including the apology call I had to make to my mother for doubting her recommendation).

Toss some frozen dinner rolls into a bundt pan, sprinkle with brown sugar and butterscotch pudding mix, and drizzle some melted butter over the top (add a few chopped nuts if you're feeling frisky). Rise, bake, eat. And eat. And eat some more (I'm serious, it's hard to stop).

If you have any sort of breakfast function to attend, bring this and you will be a hit, guaranteed. And in case you're wondering, Andi and I were also able to squeeze in a few savory meals. Like breakfast tacos. And mimosas. On a swan. Ultimate fun!

Happy Searching,

p.s. If you're a visual learner (like me) and you'd like to watch Paula make it herself, check that out here.


  1. I am assuming you can change out the butterscotch (not a fan) with say... chocolate, vanilla... Yum, yum.

  2. I am not a butterscotch fan either which is why I was skeptical, BUT there's no trace of butterscotch in the finished tastes like a rich caramel. I'm tellin' ya, it's uh-maze-ing! But love your idea...I bet vanilla would taste like a glazed donut, and chocolate? Like heaven!

  3. This was the most delicious thing!!! It's a good thing my legs can paddle a swan whilst drinking mimosas!
