Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Oh yum! This was so good, the crew ate this in no time. This coffee cake recipe is full of orange flavor. The orange cream cheese filling inside each biscuit is a nice surprise. The glaze on top adds just enough sweetness but doesn't make this coffee cake recipe too sweet. This cake is really simple to make. A beginner cook can make this and impress everyone.

Note: Each oven is different. We had to bake ours for about 40 minutes for the top to be browned just right.

Ingredients

THE DOUGH

Pam
3
canned buttermilk biscuits (not Grands)

THE FILLING

6 oz
cream cheese
1/2 c
sugar
1/4 c
orange marmelade

THE COATING

4 Tbsp
butter or magarine
1/2 c
orange marmalade
1 c
sugar

THE GLAZE

1 c
powdered sugar
3 Tbsp
orange juice
the leftover marmalade and butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a bundt pan with Pam.
2
Combine all ingredients for filling and beat until smooth.
3
Melt butter in a microwave safe dish and add marmalade to this. Microwave for about 30 seconds to melt marmalade. Cool 2-3 minutes, stir frequently.
4
Put 1 cup of sugar in a shallow bowl.
5
Set up your workstation. A cutting board to prepare the biscuit. The bowl with the cream cheese, the bowl with the sugar, the bowl with the melted marmalade and butter.
6
Take a biscuit, flatten it and put a small dollop of the cream cheese mix in the middle. Then fold in half pinching ends together. This is like making a stuffed dumpling or a pierogi or a ravioli. If you are having trouble with the cream cheese coming out, use less in the next biscuit.
7
Lightly dip folded biscuit into marmalade and butter mixture. Then roll gently in the sugar mixture to lightly coat.
8
Put into pan with the seamed edge up. They should be laid next to each other like spoke on a bicycle wheel.
9
Repeat until all stuffed and rolled biscuits are in pan evenly layered.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, the top will be browned.
10
While it's baking combine 1 cup of sugar, the remaining butter and marmalade mixture and 3 tablespoons of orange juice in a pan and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly.
11
When cake is done remove from oven and immediately invert onto a plate.
12
Spoon the glaze over all. This tastes good both warm and cold. Enjoy.
