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!

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.

  1. Yay!This recipe was 90%of what I was looking for after I forgot to buy one when shopping for my mom. I chose to just unroll the dough, sprinkle it with regular sugar and cinnamon in lieu of jam. The butter egg made according to directions stirring in the nuts. I used this for 2 rolls of crescent dough. Spreading a layer over cinnamon sugar. Rolled it jelly roll style (_________), so the long side parallel to edge of counter. Then I split it into 2 long topped twisted them. Formed a ring in parchment lined, PAM sprayed 8″ round cake pan. Topped wh remaining butter egg mix bake 375, 20mi. Made a heavy cream confec.sug. glaze

  2. I was really excited to make this as my family loves crescent rolls and coffee cake. I’m sad to say that it was a fail. It looked like the pictures while making it and when I took it out of the oven, but after letting it cool about 10 minutes, I tried to cut it and it was a soggy mess. I put it back in the oven for a total of 15 additional minutes, but it wasn’t any better.

  3. I just made this for the first time using strawberry filling. I didn’t know what the topping was supposed to look like but it was still giggly in the center when timer went off. How do I know it’s done?

  4. This was so delicious and super easy! I made it two mornings in a row using different fillings each time. Orange marmalade was our favorite. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  5. I was looking for a sweet addition to this morning’s breakfast that would be quick & use things I had on hand. This was perfect! It seems like such a versatile recipe & my kids were making suggestions for other flavors & fillings they’d like to try. It’s a great little coffee cake that I will make again.
