Pinch Me Coffee Cake

Everybody needs a nice easy breakfast that tastes great from time to time. While we do eat a lot of eggs, we also like to indulge in a yummy sweet coffee cake upon occasion. This one fits the bill. I will usually fry up some bacon to go with this treat and we have a nice breakfast. The recipe calls for cheap canned biscuits which makes this treat much faster. However, you could make a homemade biscuit dough. It would have to be doubled in order to have enough to fill the bundt pan. Hope you enjoy!!!

Pinch Me Coffee Cake

3 cans cheap biscuits (Separate each biscuit and cut each biscuit into quarters).
Bring to boil: 1 cup sugar, 1 stick butter, and 2 Tablespoons water

Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and 1 package chopped pecans.

Coat each piece of biscuit in sugar and cinnamon. Place in greased bundt pan. After each can of biscuits, pour 1/3 of the boiled sugar mixture over the layer. Continue the layers until the last can of biscuits is gone. Pour remaining sugar cinnamon and pecans onto the top. Finish with pouring the boiled mixture over the top. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. Invert onto a cake plate after you let the cake cool for a bit in the pan. This syrup will be hot so be careful! ENJOY!

Almost Empty Nester,
I have heard people call it Monkey Bread before. Paula Deen makes it by rolling up a dollop of cream cheese in each biscuit piece. She calls that Gorilla Bread!

Amy Ellen,
Let me know if your kiddos like it!

Lizbeth,
Is that why I am overweight??? I READ too many recipes! HA HA!!!
