- 2 tubes of biscuits or bread rolls
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 2/3 cup butter type product (butter, margarine)
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
mix the white sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. cut the rolls up as explained earlier and put in the sugar mixture. stir around so they are nice and coated. put coated pieces of dough in the bottom of your oven safe dish/bowl/whaterever- just make sure it's big, or use two smaller ones. i sprinkle in walnut pieces between each dough layer. once all the dough pieces are in the oven dish, pour the melted butter/sugar mixture over top and place in the oven to cook. take out when done. turn out onto a plate to cool. be very very careful when turning the cake out. the butter sugar mix is super hot.
there is usually extra sugar and cinnamon mix left over. i save that for my next baking project. it's also wicked good sprinkled on toasted bread with some butter spread on it.
also today i made a batch of ratatouile and some pear sauce. pear sauce is just like the other fruit sauces. peel and cut up the fruit, stick in a sauce pan with a little water and simmer until the fruit is soft. puree with a stick blender. it's a great way to 'save' fruit that has gone a bit mushy or bruised. instead of tossing it out, turn it into sauce.
for dinner i decided that i would do manicotti again since my motherinlaw has never had it.
