Pecan Yeasted Coffee Cake
Recipe adapted from the World’s Quickest Yeasted Coffee Cake from Cake Keeper
3/4 cup almond milk
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter (I used Earth Balance)
2 envelopes (1-1/2 tablespoons) instant yeast
1-3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup dark corn syrup
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup finely shopped pecans Method
Line a 9 x5 loaf pan with parchment paper (also can be made in an 8-inch square baking pan). Spray with baking spray.
Heat the milk and 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan until the butter is melted and the milk is very warm to the touch. Pour into a large mixing bowl and whisk in the yeast to dissolve. Stir in the flour and salt and beat with an electric mixer on medium-low speed until you have a sticky dough. Press the dough into the prepared pan.
Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar evenly over the batter.
Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Combine the corn syrup, brown sugar, and melted butter in a medium bowl and stir. Spread over the dough (I ended up using half. If you use an 8-inch square baking pan, you will need the whole portion). Sprinkle pecans evenly across the top.
Place the pan in a cold oven. Turn the heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake until the cake is golden and set in the center, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve warm.
Happy Monday and happy baking! Thanks for stopping by.

Hi! I love your pecan topping... this loaf is truly addictive and the best thing is we don't have to wait for the yeast to act.
I LOVE this! Wow! I love nutty yeast coffee cakes but a fast one? Perfect! The nut topping is outrageous! Beautiful, Lora! I am impressed with all the yeast baking you manage!
This pecan coffee cake is beyond fabulous, Lora. The minute I saw it, this went through my head "OMG, OMG..I want that so bad!". The edibility factor is to the moon in your beautiful photos..especially the first one! xo
