Ultimate Coffee Cake

(Recipe originated by Paula Deen of Food Network; submitted here by Lorraine O.)


16 to 18 unbaked, frozen dinner rolls

1 package of regular butterscotch pudding mix (3oz.), not instant

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup pecans, chopped

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted

The night before baking:  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 dough from forming a hard crust while it is 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 degrees.

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.
