Sticky Bun Ring

Did I tell you I was horrible about keeping up with a blog?  I did, didn't I?  Well, obviously, I wasn't kidding.  July, August, and apparently September, just got away from me in the blink of an eye.  Lucky for me they zoomed by because we were on vacations.  Family trips to the beach and two -yes TWO- weekends for Mommy.  I was able to spend some much needed QT with my amazing sister in Houston and my BFF in DC while Munchkin and Nugget got some alone time with Daddy. 

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

Spray a bunt pan with cooking spray and pour about half of the butter/syrup mixture into the bottom and sprinkle half of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top.  Then layer the biscuits in there.  I kind of stand them up and lean them on one another to make it easier to pull them apart.  Sprinkle the rest of the brown sugar mixture and empty the butter/syrup on top.

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!
