Raisins and rum flavor this coffeecake, ideal for serving at a New Year's Eve or New Year's Day breakfast or brunch.
It's easily prepared using thawed frozen bread dough, rolled out into a square. Spread with filling, roll up tightly and cut into pinwheels. After placing in a tube pan, let the dough rise, then bake to golden brown.
