|picture taken on my phone while eating breakfast on the back porch...ahhh|
I used candied pecans (from the peanut aisle), because plain pecans are so dang expensive. The pecans in produce and the baking aisle cost an arm and a leg. And although I have a pecan tree, it's not producing, and I couldn't find any pecans in the pantry or freezer. Needless to say, a few days later I found a Walmart bag full of pecans in the bottom of the pantry. Sigh. Oh well.
I also added some bananas. Only because I had some that needed to be eaten. So I sliced two bananas and laid the slices on top of the batter before covering it with filling.
I think my two changes were wise. The candied pecans were ahhmazing and the bananas made it taste a little more breakfasty. I took some to work and some to my parents, and it was a hit.
So go make it! And decide whether or not you'll strictly stick to the recipe.
