Buttered Rum Coffee Cake

Inside these gooey breakfast rolls you get the crunch of crushed butterscotch candies and a little taste of dark rum. More rum's in the topping.

1 (10") coffee cake

Recipe from

Oxmoor House


1 (16-ounce) package hot roll mix
2/3 cup warm milk (100° to 110°)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup crushed butterscotch candies (about 9 candies)
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
2 tablespoons dark rum
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Remove yeast packet from roll mix. Sprinkle yeast over warm milk in a large mixing bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Add 1 cup hot roll mix; beat 2 minutes at medium speed with an electric mixer. Stir in remaining hot roll mix with a wooden spoon until thoroughly blended (dough will be soft). Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

Punch dough down; let rest 5 minutes, and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 12" x 16" rectangle.

Combine brown sugar and next 4 ingredients; stir until smooth. Spread rum mixture over dough, leaving a 1" margin. Roll up dough, jellyroll fashion, starting at long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 16 (1") slices.

Spread Buttered Rum Topping into bottom of a well-greased 10" tube pan. Stand 10 dough slices against outer edge of pan. Stand remaining 6 slices against center tube of pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 50 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes in pan; invert onto a serving platter. Drizzle any remaining glaze over cake.
