Pecan Ring

I broke out the dutch oven today to try out a new recipe. It's a pecan ring that you use frozen bread dough to make. It turned out very well, but I did discover that I'm not particularly adept at making 18" long dough ropes. But it turned out alright, and I figure I will get better with more practice.

It was very windy here, so I added a few extra coals to make up for the wind. I guess I really didn't need them, as the bottom of the ring was a little darker than what I would have liked. But it wasn't burned, so it worked out O.K.

Here's the recipe for anyone that might be interested.

Pecan Ring

12” dutch oven

2 1lb loaves frozen sweet bread dough, or homemade bread dough
1/2 c butter, melted
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c packed brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c chopped pecans
1-1/4 c sifted powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Milk (about 4 tsp)
Cinnamon sticks (optional)
Pecan Halves (Optional)

Lightly grease or butter the inside of the dutch oven. On a lightly floured surface, flatten thawed dough slightly. Cut each loaf into 4 pieces. Form each piece into a rope about 18" long.

Brush each rope on all sides with melted butter. Stir together sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Place mixture on sheet of foil. Roll rope in sugar mixture to coat evenly. Shape rope into a coil in the center of the dutch oven, roll another rope in sugar, and then attach securely to end of first rope. Continue coating ropes and attaching to form a 10-11" circle.

Sprinkle any remaining sugar over coil. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Cover and let rise in a warm place for about 30-40 min. Bake at 350 for approximately 30 min or till done. This should be 8 coals underneath the dutch oven and 16 coals on the lid. If baking in a regular oven, cover with foil last 15 minutes to prevent over browning if necessary. Cool for about 15 min.

Stir together powdered sugar, vanilla, and enough milk to make a thick glaze. Spoon over top of cake. Decorate with cinnamon sticks and pecan halves, if desired. Serves 16.
