the BEST brown sugar pecan coffee cake I ever did have...

I have this box full of breakfast recipes...and I always go for the same ones every.single.time (I've shared two of my all time favorite ones HERE and HERE). 

So this weekend I thought I'd try and make something new. You guys this coffee cake recipe is now, hands down, at the top of my list! It isn't just any old coffee's a succulent, moist, brown sugar pecan coffee cake (try saying that ten times super fast?!).  I'm not joking when I say I wanted to down the entire thing in one sitting.

Now, what kind of friend would I be if I didn't share this amazingness with all of you...especially on a holiday weekend when you've been gifted an extra day to try it out! I'm just going to say your welcome ahead of really is pretty life changing!

The three main ingredients: Pecans, brown sugar, and well the dough :-)

  1. That looks delicious.

  2. I need this. NEED.

    Also, excellent foodtography my dear!

    1. definitely a NEED indeed! :-) And thank ya...the lighting was spot on that morning! :-)

  3. Remember, the majority of coffee machines are cheap appliances that are not designed to make great coffee and last a long time. So, don't be afraid to spend a little more when buying the best java machine while paying attention to the above points.

  4. Ohh, pecans! I like my cake and chocolate nutty. And this looks easy to make, so I think I have to try making this one at home. This will be perfect for afternoon delights. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Jason Underwood @ La Patisserie
