Coffee Cake Hurry-Up - 1975 cookbook recipe

1 tube refrigerator biscuits (10 count)
3 Tbsp. butter melted
1/2 cups sugar
3 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3 Tbsp. strong coffee (or 3 Tbsp. of water)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray a round cake pan with non-stick spray.  Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over the bottom of the cake pan.  Sprinkle with nuts.  Drizzle with coffee (liquid).  In a shallow dish mix sugar and cinnamon.  In another shallow bowl pour melted butter.  Dip biscuits into butter to coat and then into sugar cinnamon mixture.  Place on top of nuts in the cake pan.  Continue with all evenly placing the biscuits in the pan.  Bake 18-20 minutes.  While still hot, scoop the biscuits onto a platter and spoon up any syrup and nuts adding it to the hot biscuits.

Comments: This recipe came from a paper cookbook that dated 1975.  It's called Coffee Cake Hurry-Up and the hurry up fits very well because these are so simple and quick to make.  The Coffee Cake part is actually more like a bun.  But no matter what you want to call it, I call it a delicious, simple to make, taste of OMGoodness!  This is one that no one needs to miss out on trying.
