Here's a hint to really save you a lot of time and trouble. Go to the freezer section at the grocery store. They have pre-made frozen roll dough of almost every variety. Some are a little big, and I just cut those in half. Much easier than dealing with making the dough yourself.
This made a very tasty breakfast cake. I used a sourdough recipe for the bread and brown sugar. Instead of pinching off balls of dough, I lightly rolled it out about 1 inch thick and cut it into small squares with my pizza cutter. This made it quicker, I think. Nuts would also be a nice addition, but I didn't think of that until after the fact. Thanks for the recipe, Cindy Lynn!
I have found an easier way to make this recipe if you don't want to make your own bread. I buy 2 tubes of biscuits and slice each biscuit into quarters then roll them in the sugar and layer. Its a very yummy recipe.
