TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut, toasted
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) cook-and-serve coconut cream pudding mix
  • 20 frozen bread dough dinner rolls
  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1 jar (3 ounces) macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, coconut and pudding mix. Place 10 rolls in a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan; layer with half of the sugar mixture, 1 cup pineapple tidbits, 1/3 cup macadamia nuts and 1/4 cup butter. Repeat layers. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • 2. Remove pan from refrigerator about 1-3/4 hours before serving; let rise in a warm place until dough reaches top of pan, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Preheat oven to 350°. Remove plastic wrap. Bake coffee cake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. (Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly.) Cool 10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate; serve warm. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast coconut, spread in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 5-10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently.
