Easy Mardi Gras King Cake Knots Recipe-Big Daddy’s Seafood Market
What You Will Need:
One loaf of refrigerated french bread dough
Three tablespoons of softened butter
One quarter cup of sugar
One tablespoon of cinnamon
One cup of some powdered sugar
Four teaspoons of milk*
Half teaspoon of vanilla
How To Bake It:
First you will need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Next, unroll your french bread dough into the shape of a large rectangle. It should come out to be about about sixteen by twelve inches. Brush over the dough lightly with some softened butter. Then mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Take your cinnamon and sugar mixture and sprinkle it over butter. Now cut your dough in half (lengthwise) and then cut it crosswise into some strips that should be about one and a quarter inches wide. Twist two of the stips together. You will need to tie each strip loosely into a nice knot, stretching it gently if you need to, and then place it on a baking sheet. Make sure to space them about two inches apart. Then, bake them for about twenty-five to twenty-eight minutes. Let cool. While they cool, mix together your vanilla, powdered sugar, and milk. Now dip each knot into the icing mixture and then sprinkle on your colored sugar. Then simply serve and enjoy!
* You may choose to use more milk to get the desired consistency.
** Purple, Yellow and Green are the typical colors for the sugar used on a Mardi Gras king cake, but you may used whatever colors you prefer.
