Orange Almond Coffee Cake Recipe


I have the hardest time making time to do anything these days. Between work which consumes usually with my drive time a 12 hour day, I am exhausted when I get home. I actually relax and unwind when I blog and this is still my biggest hobby since 2009.
Being a wife, mother of two grown sons and now have a new grandson, I look for quick and simple ways to make tasty foods than ever before.  I guess I am slowing down. Even with the kids grown I find less and less time to do what I use to or the motivation to keep going.  Here is a simple coffee cake using refrigerator roll dough to make this delicious coffee cake bursting with orange and almond flavor.



Orange Almond Coffee Cake Recipe

1 can refrigerator brand orange sweet rolls (found in the dairy area along with cookie section of your supermarket) if you can't find these use cinnamon rolls
8 teaspoons orange marmalade warmed in microwave 30 seconds
1/3 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup almond paste
3 tablespoon chopped butter
whole toasted and sliced almonds toasted around 1 cup
1 can cream cheese frosting
Optional: If you love more orange flavor sprinkle zest over the marmalade stage!
1  9 inch round or square baking pan sprayed with cooking oil
Preheat oven to 350.  Place the dough rolls in the greased pan and drizzle warmed marmalade over the tops.
In a small bowl add the flour and sugar. Using a fork add in the butter, almond paste and mix until crumbling. Sprinkle over dough.

Bake on 350 degree hot oven until browned around 25 minutes.
While warm spread with cream cheese canned frosting  note: (the packet that comes with it is not enough frosting). Sprinkle with sliced and toasted almonds. Cool 20 minutes before serving.

I totally relate. I epend a good 1-1/2 hours in my car just to work (round trip). I leave by 7 am and get home by 6 pm and am beat. It seems like life with kids was easier only because I was younger!

Bill would love this (well, sans nuts!). I love a shortcut for those busy days! And I bet most people would never guess it's not totally from scratch :)

Yes, of course I'd love this. And how do you stay thin?
