“Mama’s Travelers” Sticky Biscuit Cake

This sticky biscuit cake is adapted from a classic family recipe, and it's just like sticky buns... but in cake form! Raisins, nuts, brown sugar, and butter combine to make this sweet, delicious breakfast cake (or anytime cake, really!)

This recipe started out with good intentions. I had a fantastic recipe in my great grandmother’s handwriting, a classic recipe that just makes me think of Christmas morning– sticky buns. The recipe, referred to as “Mama’s Travelers” for some reason, looked delicious… and called for biscuit dough. Luckily, my other great grandmother had left a recipe for melt-in-your-mouth biscuits, making a perfect biscuit dough for this sweet recipe. And all went well, until I went to roll it up… and then I realized these wouldn’t be sticky buns after all. However, what resulted was the best. darn. mistake I’ve ever made (because, well, with some quick thinking, it became a cake).
