Are you in need of a quick & easy crowd-pleasing breakfast treat?
I pinned The Jone Way's Sticky Bun Breakfast Ring (original recipe came from All Things Delicious) a year ago, then forgot all about it! Lucky for me, I did a pin-ventory last week (while avoiding the thing I was really supposed to be doing) and rediscovered it.
Well I made this ooey-gooey breakfast treat last weekend and . . . let's just say, there were only a few meager morsels left after my trio of super eaters finally pushed themselves away from the table.
|Yum, yum, yum!|
Cinnamon-Pecan Pull-Apart Bread
adapted from All Things Delicious
- cooking spray
- 2 small tubes refrigerator flaky grand biscuits
I use "grands", cause more is always better when feeding my crew.
I've made this with both buttermilk and flaky biscuits, and personally prefer the flaky. With buttermilk there was still a hint of biscuit-ness, while the flaky didn't seem biscuit-ish at all.
- 1/2 stick (4 Tbs) melted unsalted butter
- 1/2 C maple syrup
- 1/3 C packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 C roughly chopped pecans (optional)
(You can do 1/4 C pecans & 1/4 C walnuts, but I don't like walnuts, so I stick with pecans.)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Spray tube or bundt pan with cooking spray.
- Combine the melted butter and syrup in a small bowl and set aside.
- In separate bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nuts.
- Pour approximately 1/2 C of the syrup mixture into the bottom of the pan. Then sprinkle half of the sugar & nut mixture around.
- Fan biscuits around the pan, overlapping snugly.
- Sprinkle remaining brown sugar/nut mixture over biscuits, then pour remaining butter/syrup mixture over the top.
- Spray a piece of foil with cooking spray and lay over top of pan.
This keeps the top from browning to much.
- Put bundt pan on cookie sheet (to insulate the bottom and prevent burning).
- Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes, rotating 1/2 way through cooking time.
- Remove foil 10 minutes before done baking to allow top to brown.
- Remove from oven and let cool for a minute or two, but not much longer, or the cooling gooey goodness will start to stick to the pan.
- Invert bread onto serving dish. Let bread cool another 2-3 minutes before serving, then let your family and friends rip into it.
Enjoy! And have a very Merry!
