- 18 sweet dinner rolls (tested with King's Hawaiian)
- 4 large eggs, divided use
- 1 3⁄4 cups whole milk, divided use
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 (15 1/4 ounce) box cinnamon, streusel muffin mix (tested with Betty Crocker)
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup jumbo red raisins, soaked in hot water at least 15 minutes, drained and patted dry on paper towels
- 1⁄2 cup chopped pecans
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 -2 tablespoon milk or 1 -2 tablespoon cream
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 12-inch jellyroll pan with nonstick foil.
- Slice the rolls in half. Set the tops aside. Tear the bottoms into 1-inch chunks and spread in a single layer over the bottom of the prepared pan.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 of the eggs, 1 cup of the milk, sour cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until well-combined. Tear the tops of the rolls into chunks about 1 inch in size and add to the milk/egg mixture. Set aside to soak up the liquid.
- Combine muffin mix (reserve the streusel), remaining 3/4 cup milk, oil, and the 2 remaining eggs in a large mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed until combined.
- Spoon 1/2 of the batter evenly over the bottoms of the rolls in the pan, and gently spread a bit using the back of a large spoon. Sprinkle with raisins and the contents of the cinnamon streusel packet. Spoon the remaining batter over the top of the raisins and streusel.
- Spoon the reserved milk and roll top mixture over the muffin batter in the pan. Use the tip of a knife or wooden skewer to swirl the two batters together. Sprinkle with pecans.
- Bake about 35 to 40 minutes, until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let bread pudding coffee cake cool completely in the pan.
- For the glaze, combine powdered sugar and enough milk until smooth and just thick enough to drizzle. Pour into a ziptop bag, squeeze out the air, and seal. Snip off a tiny corner of the bag and use it to drizzle the glaze in a zig-zag pattern over the top of the coffee cake. Let glaze set before lifting cake out of the pan with the foil. Cut and serve.
- Store any leftovers in a covered. This is even better the next day.
