Paula Deen’s Ultimate Coffee Cake

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and that the coming year will bring joy to each and everyone of you!

As you have probably been able to tell from the recipes I have posted, I am more of a baker than a cook and the recipes I tend to try are more in the desert line. I’m sure this love of baked goods comes from my earliest days. I can remember being 11 or 12 when I first started reading recipes and wanting to try them.  My Mother was a wonderful cook and cooked for a large family on a very limited budget. I will always be grateful to her for indulging my childhood wish to experiment. If I found a recipe I wanted to try and if the ingredients were available in our kitchen she gave me free range to bake any desert I wanted to taste test. I can remember trying pop-overs, eclairs, pies, cakes, puddings and more. 50 + years later I am still experimenting and trying new recipes – unfortunately I don’t have a houseful of people to be my taste testers any longer. Fortunately, I do have neighbors and friends who have been willing to step into the taste tester position for me.

This recipe is one that I found on Paula Deen’s site and just had to try! This pecan sticky pull apart is absolutely wonderful – it’s rich and gooey and very messy to eat but is so easy and so very good it’s worth the sticky fingers! The only change I made to Paula’s recipe is to add cinnamon to the brown sugar before sprinkling it over the rolls. This picture came from a site called Better Recipes and was posted by CMorrison64. I really hope you will try this pull apart as it only takes about 5 minutes to put together and the taste is the best sticky bun flavor I’ve found.
