This is a mix up or recipes. It’s kind of a combination of apple cobbler, cinnamon rolls and French toast rolled all into one.
Our family has a tradition of breakfast for dinner on Sunday nights. I use this as an opportunity to experiment a little with breakfast options we’ve never tried before, or to make up and test new recipes. This was the later.
Here’s how I did it.
First mix up a basic baking powder biscuit dough with some cinnamon and sugar added.
Baking Powder Biscuit Dough:
2 cups all purpose flour (or your flour of choice)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbls baking powder
2 tbls sugar
1 tbls cinnamon
Cut in 1/2 stick of butter with pastry blender.
Add 1 cup of milk. Stir until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl and pour out on to a floured surface. Knead just until smooth and let rest.
4 Gala apples (or your favorite baking apple, or whatever is in your fridge), chopped into 1″ pieces
Melt 2 tbls butter in a large skillet. Stir in 3 tbls brown sugar, and 1/2 tsp salt, and cook over medium heat until bubbly. Stir in apples and cook about 3 minutes.
French Toast Mix:
2/3 cup milk
1 tsp Vanilla
Whisk together in a 2-cup measuring cup.
Put it all together:
Butter a large cast iron skillet or a big casserole dish.
Roll your biscuit dough into 2″ balls and space evenly around your skillet or casserole. Next, pour the French toast mix over the biscuit dough. Spoon your cooked apples over the top of everything. Bake for 25 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
Serve with your favorite pancake topping – maple syrup, honey, agave nectar, whipped cream…. the options are endless.
