Nutty Orange Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Coffee Cake- Nutty Pecan Orange Cream Cheese
This is my favorite 2010 new coffee cake recipe, courtesy of Barbara Leach from the Tuesday "Down and Dirty Domino's Dames!"
  • ¾ C granulated sugar
  • 1+ C chopped pecans
  • Zest a whole orange
  • 2 (12 oz. -10 count) cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (I use Junior Grands)
  • 1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
  • 1 stick melted butter
  • 1 C sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 2 T fresh orange juice
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter a bundt pan.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar, pecans and zest; set aside.
  4. Separate the biscuits.
  5. Cut cream cheese into 20 equal squares 4 X 5.
  6. Place a square in the center of each biscuit.
  7. Fold each biscuit in half over the cream cheese, pressing the edges to seal.
  8. Dip biscuits in melted butter, and then dredge in granulated sugar mixture.
  9. Place the biscuits, curved-side up, in a single layer in the hollows of a lightly greased 12-cup bundt pan, spacing them evenly (do not stack.) Place any remaining biscuits (4 or 5) around the middle tube, filling any gaps.
  10. Drizzle any remaining butter over the biscuits and sprinkle with any remaining sugar mixture.
  11. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown.
  12. Immediately invert the cake onto a serving platter.
  13. Combine the confectioners' sugar and orange juice, stirring well; drizzle the glaze over the warm cake. Best served warm.
  14. The full recipe will easily serve 10 people.
  15. You can prepare this the night before, cover with saran wrap and store in the fridge.
  16. Take it out the next morning and bake it off.
  17. If 2 rolls for 10 people is too much, you can put 4 rolls into 5 ramekins. Wrap well with saran wrap, then foil, and then freeze them. Take out one ramekin per two people and bake off.
