Pull-Apart Bread Help!!!!

Ok, I wanted to make the carmel pecan pull-apart bread that goes in the small saute pan for my show last night. I was hoping it would help sell some of the cookware. Well, I dont like to make anything without practicing it first. So, Sunday morning before church, I made it for my family for breakfast. It was awesome and everyone loved it. I made it for my show last night exactly the same except I added the pecans (one of the my kids won't eat them so I left them out). While it was baking, it began to bubble over and drip all over the bottom of my hostess' oven, and she had just cleaned it the night before just for the show! :eek: Then it started to smoke a little, and then a lot. We put a pan under it to catch the drips but this seemed to only make it worse! Soon the smoke was literally rolling out of her oven. The bread still turned out just fine and everyone loved it and laughed about the whole thing. I told them all that I just made the exact same recipe a few days before and that did not happen to me. I'm just wondering what went wrong. I didn't add very many pecans at all incase there was someone there that didn't like them. I had one idea of what might have been the cause, but not for sure. When I made them at home, the biscuits went straight from my fridge to be cut up and into the pan. I supplied the ingredients for this show, so they had to ride in the car with me to her house about 45 minutes. I did stick them back in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes before I made the recipe. Do you think that because the biscuits had a chance to warm up and soften that they just swelled up more and caused a spill-over? Any advice would be very helpful. This recipe is so great and simple I would hate to not demo it again, but scared to death of the over flow happening again. :confused:

I would just back off on the carmal a bit. The bread could have been the cause, but also did you use a full stick of butter or a half? I have found that a half works just as well, less fat. I haven't had this happen, but I don't put a full jar of carmal in. I only do half, and they taste awesome! :D

Both times I did use a full stick of butter and a full jar of caramel. The only difference the second time was the pecans (about 1/2 cup) but maybe that was just enough to do it. I also have an electric oven and she has a gas one, but I wouldn't think that would make a difference. Oh well, I am going to practice with the apple cinnamon ones today for a brunch I have coming up. Thanks for the advice!

Haha, the same thing happened to me at my show last Friday. I think it was because I used the whole jar of caramel. I felt so bad for smoking out their kitchen. We had to move the demo to the living room. I just hope none of the guests thought I was incompetent. At my show the next day I did the apple cinnamon pull apart bread instead. I didn't feel like smoking out another kitchen.

Update

Ok, I made the caramel pull-apart again at my show Saturday. I did cut down to 1/2 jar of caramel, but left the butter at a full stick just to see what would happen. It still ran over just a little but not nearly as bad as Tuesday nights show, and it didn't smoke up her house at all. I will cut back on the butter next time too.

Thanks for everyone's help!

saute pan pull-aparts

Hello, I am very intrigued by the pull-apart bread recipes for the saute pan. I cannot open any word docs, does anyone know where I can find these recipes other than in word docs? Any help would be appreciated!

I am very challenged by cooking so please forgive me for asking questions that should be obvious.

1. Which utensil do you use to bake these?
2. Add the biscuits to which pan?
3. Toss with butter mixture implies that you toss everything around like a sald. Hmmm...could this be right?

Help me...........please somebody

If you are using the Saute Pan, or any non-stick pan for that matter, do not use metal utensils! Use nylon or wooden/bamboo. I actually use my little bamboo spoons for this recipe.

First you melt the butter in the saute pan, then add the spices, then add the biscuits to the butter/spice mixture in the saute pan. Stir the biscuits around until they are all coated in the butter mixture, use a wooden/bamboo spoon. Then pop this whole pan, butter/spices/biscuits and all, into the oven.

In about 15-20 minutes the biscuits will have puffed up and cooked, take the saute pan out of the oven, remember to use oven mitts. You can eat these out of the pan or flip them over onto a plate. The bamboo tongs work good and I guess the silicone tipped chef's tongs would work well too. We just let it cool down a bit and use our fingers.

I hope this helped. Linda

Hi lisa I usually use smuckers brand 12.5 oz I believe. Personally I don't use the whole jar I generally use a 1/2 to 3/4. Try it out before making it at a show. I hope this helps.:D

How much cinnamon have you all put in the cinnamon apple one? I made it for my famiy, and just sprinkled a good amount on there, I didn't measure, but it definitely needed more cinnamon. and the recipe doesn't say how much. I haven't made the caramel one yet...so I'm glad I read this first!
The garlic is a family favorite now!

For the carmal ones I don't use the whole jar because of the boiling over factor. I don't want a mess in my oven or a hosts.
For the apple cinnamon I use a tablespoon of our cinamon plus mix. I hope this helps. They are all very yummy.

Don't feel so bad. I quadrupled the recipe to make in the grill pan for a fundraiser show and the same happened to me. Only I was making the ones with brown sugar and butter! It was a mess! I sold a grill pan and a roasting pan that day though!

in 12"executive skillet?

Hi, I am doing a brunch tomorrow and wondered if I could do this in the 12" skillet? Do you think a full jar of caramel and 1 stick of butter would work? Also, I made it in the saute pan with cresent rolls and liked it much better than biscuits. :) Thanks for input on those that have tried the 12". Do you flip it out with the 12" or serve out of the pan?

Great Ideas!

I'm so excited to try these recipes! I've been wanting to do a Pampering for some businesses and didn't have a clue as to what I could take. I don't like the idea of having to leave a stone or something. :) I can hardly wait to try it. I'm sure my family will love trying these recipes!

Thanks!

I fixed them today for my show and I put about 1/4 teas in mine and they tasted great. I also had the problem with the over flow and smokey kitchen, but we just put a pizza pan under them and that seemed to catch the most of it. I think I will try cutting it to a half stick of butter, see if that fixes the spill over problem.
