King Cake in a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Great recipe! I am from New Orleans but have lived overseas for the last 9 years and around Mardi Gras time I always get homesick. I make a King Cake every Kings Day, using my breadmaker, and this one is by far the best. I have made it twice in the past two days. I did do a couple things different. The first time I made it, I accidentally put the pecans in with the filling mix and then spread the entire thing on the dough instead of only spreading the butter/sugar mix and then adding pecans. It was a bit harder to spread and I ended up having to double the butter, but the result was great. The filling tasted like a slightly crunchy praline filling. Definitely worth a try. The second time I made it, I doubled the filling mix and then spread the butter/sugar mix over the dough and then sprinkled on the pecans. The pecans baked up softer this time. Both ways are excellent, it depends on your mood. The measurements were spot on for me, with the exception of doubling the filling. The only difference I had is that I found I needed to bake the cake for about 40 minutes both times, it might just be my oven though. Either way, great recipe!
