DO NOT  read this post and recipe unless you plan to bake right away

Gives you craving to have something cinnamony with a hint of vanilla and maybe chocolate . -ok add butter scotch to that . .

Yup thats what I microwaved , all of the above in chips with a few caramels and curly wurly all sprinkled with cinnamon sugar atop. . Now I was at peace to go back to the recipe and post . . .
Ps- if you want to try the dukan diet make sure your pantry doesn't boast of a good collection of chocolate chips of all kinds. 

There is no saying how creative You can get with them.

Important note/WARNING
Rightly said that this cake will surely test your self control ,i needed a few caramel bars dipped in cinnamon sugar even as I begun baking these ;-)

And if like me your making this coffee cake or monkey bread cake for the very first time as I was you'd be just as excited.

All the steps ,tossing the vanilla sugar with cinnamon in a zipper bag (or a large bowl as i did) , and tossing scoopfulls of the prepared dough to coat them all with the cinnamon vanilla sugar, placing them in the prepared pans and sprinkling with nuts and raisins    pecans as I go . . . 
And all those scents wafting around while baking.

 And while that bakes so waiting to have a peek a boo of how these bake , what they would look like after they bake and how deliciously the cinnamon vanilla combi would take these to a new height.

I went back and forth a many times over trying to decide on a large cake or a couple of minis, and a couple of minis in my small pan it was.

Oh all that caramelly goodness coating the crunchy pecans.....

The dough comes together pretty easily , mix the dry ingredients , cut in some very very chilled cubed butter , and let some nice vanilla buttermilk or whisked yogurt bring it all together.

Then scoop balls with whatever size of scoop u want , and toss them in some Vanilla Cinnamon Sugar (ahh already getttn so good) ,  get them a bit round again if they seem to have gone outa shape and this step is soo good , all that cinnamon vanilla sugar clinging to ur warmish hands as it goes.....
