I really don't even have an excuse for September other than school, ballet, gymnastics, and speech therapy hitting me in the face every week. Oh, and DISNEY! Yes, the Holcombs hit Florida last week with some our dear neighbors to visit Mickey, Minnie, and all their pals. Truly an amazing week for our family. The littles will only appreciate the magic for so long and we're blessed to be able to share it with them!
Now to the food. This has been a staple in this house all summer... easy peasy Saturday morning treat. Anyone from my next of the woods is familiar with Dewey's Bakery. If you're not, I'm sorry. It is seriously an experience. Pink Lemonade cake to die for. And the Moravian Sugar cake. Oh. My. Word. This recipe comes so close to that flavor, it's like dessert for breakfast. All you need is 5 simple ingredients. I'd be willing to bet you already have them in your pantry and fridge right now. Butter, brown sugar, pancake syrup, cinnamon, and refrigerated biscuits. Seriously, that's it.
Mix 1/3C brown sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon together in a small bowl.
Melt 3 tbs of butter and mix in 1/2 C of pancake syrup
Throw that pan of deliciousness into the oven and restrain yourself for 20-25 minutes till it's golden brown. Invert the pan onto a large plate and try not to scald your mouth and fingers by digging in too soon.
My kids love this, so do the grown-ups in this house.
Sticky Bun Ring
1 tube refrigerator buttermilk biscuits (I use the Grands kind)
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 C. pancake syrup
1/3 C. packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Spray a fluted pan with non-stick spray. Combine the melted butter and syrup in a small bowl and set aside. In another bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nuts (if desired). Place about half of the syrup mixture in the bottom of the pan. Then sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture on top. Lay the biscuits on the bottom of the pan, overlapping edges (closely together) to form a ring. Top with remaining syrup and sugar mixtures. Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 1 minute in the pan, then invert onto a serving platter and enjoy!
