I had wanted to make a sweetbread for Easter breakfast, so I went on line and searched www.allrecipes.com until I found a simple recipe. It said I needed 3 tubes of refrigerator biscuits, 2 cups of white sugar, 4 tablespoons of cinnamon, Ã‚Â½ cup chopped pecans and Ã‚Â¼ cup melted butter. I was supposed to cut each biscuit into fourths, dredge them in the cinnamon sugar mixture and then layer them in an 8 inch cake pan. Next I was to melt the butter, add the remaining sugar mixture and pecans to the butter and then POUR that over the biscuits. Lastly, I was to bake at 375 for 40 minutes and remove when golden brown.
I got out the biscuits, mixed up the cinnamon and sugar, cut the biscuits into fourths and began to layer them into the pan. After coating the biscuit bits, I melted the butter and added the remainder of the cinnamon sugar mix. IÃ¢Â€Â™m not sure how many of you are bakers, but does 2 cups of sugar and Ã‚Â¼ cup of butter sound right to you?? There was NO way to POUR this over anything. So much for following the directions to a *t*. I added another Ã‚Â¼ cup of melted butter and that barely helped either. Lastly, I tried a bit of milk and I got a slightly more pourable consistency. I poured about Ã‚Â½ of the mixture on top of the bread and had to dump the rest. This is a picture of my heinous result. Typically, IÃ¢Â€Â™m not such a clod in the kitchen, but for some reason, this was not one of my better efforts.
So be it!! Happy Easter, everyone!
