I first learned how to make this when I was a little girl and the woman who ran the daycare had the kids work together to make it. Now, I make this with my own kids. I don't use walnuts, I use pecans. Sometimes if I think of it, I'll make a vanilla glaze to drizzle over the top after I've turned it upside down. This doubles well and honestly disappears in 15 minutes. My family loves this. It's a great substitute for people who love cinnamon rolls but don't want to spend the time to make them.



Boy does this bring back memories... This definitely is an irresistable childhood favorite and a great way to use Grands Biscuits. Not only is it fun to make, but fun to eat! I always use a bundt pan sprayed with Pam for baking so everything comes out with ease. I add the optional nuts and raisins along with 1 tsp. of vanilla to the butter and brown sugar mixture. When it's done, just invert the whole thing onto a plate and get out a ton of napkins!



A tip learned the hard way: don't use spray for greasing the cake pan. It's too much. Lightly spread some butter with a paper towel and it cooks better, and isn't as "greasy".
