OK, while I must agree with reviewers who detest people who rate after totally changing a recipe I do understand the reasons folks do this. You may follow most of a recipe, but want to share your own adaptions. That being said...
This recipe is to die for!! I made the dough as written, with the exception of 1 tsp nutmeg added. It is flexible and a dream to work with. Rises beautifully.
I wanted to use both the cinnamon filling as listed and the cream cheese filling of the "King Cake" also on this site, so that is what I did. (8oz softened cream cheese, 1/2 c gran. sugar and 1/4 c 10X sugar)....blended this and spread first.
Then followed directions for the cinnamon sugar filling from this recipe (doubling it) And I added 1 cup chopped pecans.
I placed a greased bowl in center of my circle to hold the shape, definitely needed to as cake rose spectacularly and would have been solid.
I made my own frosting/glaze and used the traditional Mardi Gras colors of decorating sugars.
The cake is sweet, moist and delightful! Both fillings are Not a necessity...but a decadent treat!
I am adding 5 photos of the stages of building this cake! Definitely will make again and again!
