Upside-Down Pecan Skillet Bread


I love pecans. They go great in so many recipes and thanks to my mom, I always a supply in my freezer. My parents have several pecan trees on their farms that supply my family with these delicious gems. For instance, you just gotta try these homemade caramel pecan clusters!!! They are super easy to make and a wonderful snack to serve to your family and friends. 

Upside-Down Pecan Skillet Bread

Okay, let’s talk about this great recipe for Upside-Down Pecan Skillet Bread. It starts with combining a mixture of pecans, tossed together with melted butter and brown sugar together in a small saucepan.

Once the mixture is thoroughly heated, it is placed at the bottom of a well-greased cast-iron skillet.

The next step is to make the bread dough and spread it evenly over the top of the pecan mixture and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the center is set and the top is golden brown.

When the Upside-Down Skillet Bread is finished baking, immediately flip it onto a platter or wooden cutting board.

I allowed the bread to cool for just a few minutes then drizzled a little homemade maple icing over each slice.

Well, you can imagine just how wonderful my kitchen smelled after I took this Upside-Down Pecan Skillet Bread out of the oven. Yep! Pretty tasty!!! style=
