Meet the Sullivans: Caramel-Nut Pull-Apart Bread

Caramel-Nut Pull-Apart Bread

YUM! I've made this before and forgot to blog about it, and so when I decided to make it again I knew I wanted to share it because its so simple and so good. This tastes like a giant bear claw donut. It is definitely not low-fat or low-cal, but you can pull a little piece off, enjoy and call it a day. Mmmm...

Caramel-Nut Pull-Apart Bread
For a printer-friendly version click here. 

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar + 3tsp cinnamon, mixed together
1 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup butter, melted
3 (10-ounce) cans refrigerated biscuits (use the Flaky kind)


Combine brown sugar and walnuts in a small bowl. Stir in butter. Spoon half of sugar mixture in bottom of a greased Bundt pan.

Cut each biscuit in half (use kitchen scissors for quick cutting) and toss with the white sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place half of biscuit halves alternately over sugar mixture. *Make sure you use the flaky Pillsbury biscuits and not the grands. I used the grands and they came out a little doughy after the suggested time so I had to put them back in the oven for a bit. The flaky kind turn out much better! 

Spoon remaining sugar mixture over biscuits in pan; top with remaining biscuits.

Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes or until browned--it smells so incredible while it cooks! Turn out onto a serving platter immediately, spooning any sauce left in pan over bread.
