Prep time: 15 min
Bake time: 30 to 40 min
Total time: 45 to 50 min

Utensils: Mixing bowl, measuring cups, measuring spoons, bundt pan (9 or 10 inches), oven, a gallon size plastic zipper bag, one non-stick saucepan

Granulated sugar: 1 cup
Refrigerated buttermilk biscuits: 3 cans (16.3 oz each)

  • 1

    Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Open the biscuit cans and separate the biscuit segments. Cut each biscuit into four equal pieces.

  • 3

    Pour one cup white sugar and two tablespoons of cinnamon powder in the plastic zipper bag and shake well to mix.

  • 4

    Now add the biscuit pieces to the plastic bag and shake well to coat them completely with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

  • 5

    Take a non-stick sauce pan and melt ¾ cup butter in it. Make sure the heat is medium high (high heat will burn the butter).

  • 6

    When the butter has melted, add one cup of brown sugar to it and cook for a couple of minutes, or until it has completely melted into the butter. Stir continuously when cooking brown sugar in the butter.

    Lightly grease a 10 inch bundt pan with shortening, butter or cooking spray.

    Pour the butter and brown sugar mixture over the top of biscuit pieces now.

    Place the pan in the preheated oven (325 degrees Fahrenheit) and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until colour of the topping changes to golden brown.
