Initially I wanted to prepare a no-knead bread, but then I realized that it involved shaping and baking in the morning which didn’t really fit into theme. I couldn’t really find any bread that was appropriate for the theme and I almost panicked.
Then I found this Overnight Sticky Pecan Bread in this month’s Cooking Light magazine and I jumped in joy. This recipe is just perfect all of the prep is done the night before and all that needs to be done in the morning is to remove the pan from the fridge and bake it off.
This is basically a cinnamon roll recipe topped with sticky pecan topping. I mostly followed the recipe as given except for using some wholewheat pastry flour along with all purpose flour. Also I used egg replacer powder instead of eggs in the recipe. Even with all my substitutions, the bread turned out delicious, soft with lots of cinnamon flavor.
