Ratings & Reviews



This recipe was very easy, but next time I think I will leave out the orange zest. I didn't find it added anything to the recipe.


Not sure what the difference is but I followed the recipe as is and had none of the dryness issues that others expressed. It was yummy and easy to make!


I was very disappointed - not much flavour at all.


This recipe was easy to make and was a big hit at christmas brunch. The cook time took a little longer than stated but not all ovens are created equally.


I've made another pull-apart bread from Kraft which was MUCH better. This one was impossible to "pull" apart, the orange zest over powered any other flavor of cinnamon and vanilla pudding mix. Also, it was way to dry (hence, the pulling part issue). The icing was good but I had to add more milk than it called for. I do think there must be something wrong with this recipe.


My Family loved the Pull apart coffee cake. I'll be making it on Mother's Day and other special occasions.


Very easy to make and it turned out wonderful.


I made this recipe for a Christmas brunch over the weekend. Easy to make,wonderful taste and texture. It was a big hit at my party!


Great for brunch buffet. Have to eat while hot as the biscuits get hard once cooled.


I enjoy pull apart breads. They are very fast to make, taste wonderful and whenever I make one, it disappears quickly! I liked this one made with pudding mix. The buns had a wonderful vanilla flavour. I would add more cinnamon because it was lost in the bread. The bread was evenly risen over the top of my cake pan.


i made this exact to recipe. The dough was hard on the outside and soft in the middle. Did not rise well at ALL. The icing was not bad, but looked horrible. I like the idea but i think the recipe is way off.
