All about this Quick Caramel Coffee Ring

This quick caramel coffee ring comes together so quickly and easily.  In less than an hour, you will have a delicious coffee cake and no one will ever know you started with canned biscuits.   We try to make as many recipes and dishes as we can from scratch but sometimes you need short-cuts and that calls for canned biscuits.    

The best way to make this caramel coffee ring is to use a bundt pan.  You can also use a regular cake pan or a large cast iron skillet.  We just enjoy the shape that making it in a bundt pan offers us.  It’s a little way of feeling a little more fancy with such a simple recipe.  

To make this delicious coffee ring, you first make a caramel sauce with butter and brown sugar.  This caramel sauce is what you drizzle on the bottom and throughout the biscuit mixture to create a delicious buttery caramel cake.  The best part of this coffee ring is that the caramel sauce develops a delicious crust on the underside of the cake.  With each piece, you will enjoy all the elements of this delicious coffee cake.
