Coffee cakes are perfect for baking on any occasion. Breakfast, Brunch, Dessert, a gift, or even just to fill your home with a wonderful scent of baked bread.This is by far one of the best Coffee Cakes that I have ever eaten. It is a perfect balance of cake/bread and gooey goodness. It was almost reminiscent of a cinnamon roll, the middle had to be the best part! I also ate a slice with some vanilla ice cream which made it more dessert. But feel free to enjoy this with your morning cup of coffee as well.
Delicious Rating: This is a yeast bread so it involves a little skill of working it just right but once you have it down it becomes an easy recipe to bake up. Adding too much flour could be detrimental to the bread. However I doubt this Pecan Coffee Cake could turn out bad at all. It was delicious. I used a strawberry jam but you can change it to apple, apricot, or any other berry you like. You will not want to share this once it is out of the oven but if you do your friends will be raving and want the recipe for sure!

Instead of pecans try walnuts or even almonds!
Be sure not to boil the milk mixture or have it scalding as it will kill the yeast.
If you have a stand mixer you are welcome to use the dough hook to knead the dough. Also if you don’t want strawberry jam, I think an apple or apricot would be equally delicious.
The funnest part of baking is making pretty things so your friends can ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over it! At least that is what they did to me when they saw this coffee cake. Looks a lot more fancy than the work is.
So you will want to dive into this immediately. Don’t go for the middle with a fork just yet! Patience!
