Maple-Nut Coffee Twist

Janet Smith


I got this recipe from my aunt. I don't know where she got it, but it is a keeper. I make it for church breakfast potlucks and there is never any left to bring home. I also made it for my neighbor and her family one year for Christmas morning. They loved it so much it's a tradition now.

A little time consuming, but makes a pretty coffee cake.

pinch tips: Perfect Bacon Every Time




2 Hr


20 Min


1 pkg
pillsbury hot roll mix (prepare according to package directions)


3 Tbsp
1 tsp
maple flavoring


1 c
1 1/2 tsp
1 1/2 tsp
maple flavoring
1/2 c
chopped nuts (i use pecans)
6 Tbsp
margarine or butter, melted


1 1/2 c
powdered sugar
1/4 tsp
maple flavoring
2 to 3 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

In large bowl dissolve yeast from hot roll mix in warm water.

Stir in egg, sugar and maple flavoring.

Add hot roll flour mixture; blend well

Place in greased bowl.

Cover, let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, 30 to 45 minutes.
Combine all Filling ingredients except margarine.
Grease 12 inch pizza pan.
Divide dough equally into three balls.

On lightly floured surface, roll out one ball of dough to 12-inch circle. Fit into bottom of greased pizza pan.

Brush dough with 2 tablespoons melted margarine and sprinkle with about 1/3 cup filling.

Continue in same manner forming 2 more layers and ending with filling.
Use a glass to mark a 2-inch circle in center of dough (do not cut through dough).

Cut from outside edge just to circle forming 16 pie shaped wedges.

Twist each wedge 5 times.

Let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, 30 to 45 minutes
Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Bake 17 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
In small bowl, combine glaze ingredients until smooth.

Drizzle over warm coffee cake.
NOTE: I was in a rush one time and didn't want to take the time to roll out three layers and do the twisting. I rolled the dough into a rectangle/oblong shape, brushed with the butter and put all the filling mix on top of that. I rolled it up lengthwise (like a jelly roll) and cut them like cinnamon rolls and baked them in a 9 x 13 inch pan. They turned out just fine. While the above directions makes a pretty cake, I and my neighbor liked them better made this way. They seemed to be moister.
