THANK YOU TO KEITH AND JUDY MURLOCK FOR THE RECIPE!!!!!!!!
Egg mixture ingredients:
• 1 dozen eggs
• 2 cups milk
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
• 1 tablespoon cinnamon
• 1 loaf of French or Italian bread, sliced
• 1/2 pound butter or margarine
• 1 pound brown sugar
• 3 one-pound cans of peaches, drained and quartered
Heat a large Dutch oven by covering it with coals for 15 minutes.
Beat the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Slice the bread and let it soak in the egg mixture.
Remove preheated oven from coals and melt butter in the bottom. Add brown sugar and mix well with butter until caramelized. Put the drained peaches over the caramelized sugar. Place the egg-bread mixture on top of the peaches, cover with lid, and return the Dutch oven to the coals.
Bake 45 minutes at about 350 degrees (medium hot coals). (Cooking time is shorter if the temperature is higher, but watch the edges so they don’t burn.) For the first 10 minutes, use coals on the bottom only. Then add coals to the oven top and continue baking until done. With the caramel topping, you probably won’t even need syrup.
Option: Try substituting 3 pounds sliced bananas for peaches.
¾ cup Cinnamon
¾ cup Sugar
2 packages biscuits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a pan (Bundt, Dutch Oven etc); set aside.
In a small bowl, Cinnamon and Sugar.
Cut each biscuit in quarters. Drop each ¼ into the Cinnamon Sugar mix and coat well. Roll each 1/4 into a ball. Place dough into prepared pan; overlapping will occur (I just make a pile). Sprinkle Cinnamon Sugar mix over the pile as needed (Sweeter is better right?) Bake bread, 30 to 35 minutes (See package cook time).
Let cool in pan, 10 minutes; invert bread onto a serving plate. Enjoy!
