Crescent Roll Coffee Cake with raspberry preserves, pecans, and a sugary glaze makes an easy breakfast. The crescent rolls make this coffee cake so buttery and good.
How To Make Crescent Roll Coffee Cake:
Refrigerated crescent roll dough is spread with raspberry preserves and rolled up into crescent rolls. The rolls are places in a 9-inch cake pan and a butter, brown sugar, and egg mixture is poured on top of them.
Sprinkle a few pecans on top and bake for about 25 minutes. Drizzle an easy glaze all over it and cut into pie shaped pieces. This is seriously one of the easiest and most delicious coffee cakes ever!
This easy Crescent Roll Coffee Cake tastes so good with a cup of coffee and kids will love it too. It’s so buttery and good. The outside gets browned and crispy and inside you have that nice fruit preserve surprise for a little more flavor.
I use a 9-inch cake pan for making this coffee cake, but you could use a 9-inch square baking pan and cut it into squares instead of wedges.
This recipe is very versatile. Instead of using raspberry preserves, use strawberry, peach or blueberry instead. Or maybe even Nutella. I’ve used pecans but you could use walnuts or almonds.
