Coffee Ring

on July 23, 2014

The neighborhood where I grew up was so great. We had 5 houses in our little area on the lake where the families were all so close. We were one big family, really, and we all grew up together. All of us, kids and adults alike, would be back and forth and in and out of all of the houses, visiting, playing, swimming, eating, and talking. Those years hold very special memories of great friends and such fun times. Memories of picnics on the pontoon, jumping (or getting throw off) the raft, the smelt fry, learning to water and snow ski, fishing for bullheads, swamping the canoe. I could go on and on. The recipe for today comes from one of those neighbors. This Coffee Ring is a great afternoon snack to have with coffee, dripping with caramel and cinnamon goodness.

Coffee Ring

We made this in the 70’s and it’s still as good as I remember it!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Coffee Ring

Combine and put into bottom of a greased bundt pan:

1/4 cup softened butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 1/2 teaspoons cream

1/4 cup chopped nuts (I didn’t use nuts)


1/4 cup butter

Then mix together:

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup white sugar

Take 2 cans of buttermilk refrigerator biscuits and dip them, one at a time, into the butter and then the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Stand them on end in the bundt pan.

Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.

Unmold right away and serve warm.


If you line everything up, you can get an assembly line going.


There is just enough butter and cinnamon and sugar to cover all the biscuits.



This could also be called “pull apart” or “monkey bread”.


The caramel on top is almost like a candy.


So good.

So easy.

Just like I remember.

Thanks to all of those neighbors for all the great memories!
