Overnight Cinnamon Pecan Coffee Cake Recipe: Easy make-ahead dish for holiday and family breakfasts. Uses basic pantry ingredients.
I haven’t made a coffee cake in a long time…I usually take the easy route and buy frozen cinnamon rolls when I have a crowd for breakfast! I ran across this overnight cinnamon pecan coffee cake recipe when I was looking for something to make in my new ruffled heart dish. I decided to look through my recipe box and see if there was anything I had not shared with you yet. I found this recipe, torn from a magazine.
I have no idea where it came from or how long it’s been in my box. What caught my attention what the “overnight” part of the recipe title. I love make-ahead recipes so I decided to give this a try.
It was very simple to make and the only ingredients you might not have are the sour cream and pecans. It’s a very basic coffee cake recipe and because of the sour cream, it’s moist and fluffy. It is, of course, delicious served warm from the oven. I shared a couple of pieces with my dad and it was a few days old by the time I got it to him. He warmed it in the microwave and gave it a definite thumbs up. He said something that made me smile too. He said that it reminded him of a coffee cake my mom used to make. Can’t get any better than that.

Today I’m part of a very beautiful tour called Heartfelt & Handmade, hosted by Jennifer from Town and Country Living. (If you’ve never visited her, you should!) There’s a variety of projects, recipes and decor ideas so I hope you have time to take a look at some of the links.
I also want to thank everyone who left a comment or sent an email about my last post featuring my new series, HAVE WANT WATCH WEAR. I LOVED hearing from everyone and enjoyed reading all the recommendations. Some of you wanted me to post once a month, but I’m afraid I won’t have enough to share. I won’t be back with another edition until after Easter, so stay tuned!
