I have mentioned before (once or twice) about how much I love Pinterest. I’m finding so many good things there – crafts, scrapbooking inspiration, and most importantly, new recipes to try.
I have also mentioned before (once or twice) about how I am so not a morning person. I don’t really get going until mid-day, mentally, and so the early mornings required of being a mommy of school-age children is rather challenging for me. Most days, I feel somewhat like a zombie shuffling through the routine. But, I like to have something warm and yummy for my girls to eat before they leave for school.
So, this morning was the morning. I modified the recipe to suit what I had on hand and received no complaints from the monkeys in the house. They said it was like a cross between cinnamon rolls, biscuits and pancakes. Well, that is probably because it is!
I didn’t use the fancy tube pan – I just used my trusty loaf pan – same basic principle but much easier for me to dig out at 5:30 in the morning. (I said it was early, didn’t I?)
You can get the recipe over on Pinterest for the original version. Or you can use mine here. I think they’re so close they are virtually the same.
Great idea for a quick breakfast treat.
Gooey Breakfast Goodness
~1 Tbsp cinnamon (I just estimated)
~4 Tbsp butter
~1/2 c sugar (or brown sugar)
~1/4 cup pancake syrup
1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a large measuring cup, combine first four ingredients. You may want to melt the butter/syrup in the microwave for about 1 minute to make the mixing easier. Mix well.
- Pour about 1-2 Tbsp of the syrup mixture in the bottom of a well-greased loaf pan (just enough to coat the bottom.
- In the pan, then stand biscuits on their sides like little soldiers marching along.
- Pour the remaining syrup mixture over the biscuits and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if desired.
- Bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes.
- Allow them to cool for a couple minutes before diving in to the yummy goodness. Can be rewarmed in the microwave if any are left over.
