This dessert has been a family favorite for many years.
It is great by itself but it is also great paired with something else. We have served it as a dessert after dinner, served with fruit, or alongside breakfast. Oh, and it goes great with a hot, fresh cup of coffee.
There is really not a wrong way to serve & enjoy!
Not to mention it is quick & easy to make. And since all of the ingredients are basic kitchen staples then it can be thrown together on a whim in the event of unexpected company.
3 cans Pillsbury biscuits, original not grands-biscuits
1 ½ sticks butter/margarine
1 1/3 cups brown sugar
3 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
You will need an ungreased Bundt pan
You will also need a round plate or platter just larger than the Bundt pan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
On low, combine & melt together the butter/margarine, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stirring occasionally so that it doesn’t burn.
While that is melting cut each biscuit into sixths, keeping the 3 cans piled separately.
The biscuits are cut & the sugar mixture is ready!
Now it is time to layer your biscuits & sugar mixture.
Now take about 1/4 cup sugar mixture & pour into Bundt pan. Then take a pile of the cut biscuits & drop throughout, scattered.
Then pour about 1/2 cup sugar mixture over the biscuits. Then take a 2nd pile of cut biscuits & drop throughout, scattered.
Then pour about 1/2 cup sugar mixture over the biscuits. Then take a 3nd (final) pile of cut biscuits & drop throughout, scattered.
Then pour the remaining sugar mixture over the last layer of biscuits.
Bake on 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Depending on your oven you may need a few more minutes, but my suggestion would be to do 2 minutes at a time. Because, after-all, no one likes burned biscuits or cake! The biscuits will turn a light golden brown when done.
Once done, take out of the oven. Then place a round plate a little bigger than the Bundt pan on top. Then carefully, but quickly, turn over to put the cake onto the plate.
The melted yum (sugar mixture) has soaked into the cake & run down the cake. Be careful not to burn yourself.
I like cutting the biscuits into small pieces (sixths), to allow better coverage with the sugar mixture.
The goal would be to get some melted sugar mixture on each of the biscuit pieces.
My family doesn’t like pecans or walnuts, but you can always add a cup (or less) of chopped pecans or walnuts to the melted mixture before doing the layering.
This cake can be cut, but it is great just pulled apart. Then indulge!!
Cover leftovers with foil, although as yummy as it is the chances of there being any are slim. Then warm in the microwave for 10-20 seconds before indulging.
Doesn’t this look yummy!!
When do you plan to make this dessert? Will you be adding pecans or walnuts? Will this be for your family or another get together?
