These gorgeous bites go out to our American cousins across the pond! In (early) celebration of Thanksgiving, and because my work colleagues are always keen for baked goodies, I decided to make these delicious sticky pecan toffee cinnamon swirls.
I got these out of the Great British Bake Off: Big Book of Baking, which actually has a funny story about it:
Tangent warning* – So on the way back form visiting my parent’s there was horrid weather – I mean terrible: gale force winds, sideways rain, all sorts of things blowing across the motorway. Now I had already done my stint of driving (I hate driving…) and so in my capacity as chief navigator I missed the turning for the M6 so we ended up on the M6 Toll. This however was a really good thing in the end as the rain got to the point where we had to slow down to 30mph on the motorway as we couldn’t see a thing! As the conditions were so dangerous even on the nice empty M6 toll we stopped off at the services – where there was a Smiths, where they had the GBBO book on sale for a fiver… thus bad rain storm = cookery book YAY – Tangent over.
