Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

The Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel is on Friday. On July 16, 1251, Mary appeared to St. Simon Stock and gave him the Brown Scapular. Mary told him, "Whoever dies clothed in this scapular shall not suffer eternal fire." She also said, "Wear it devoutly and perseveringly, it is my garment. To be clothed in it means you are continually thinking of me, and I in turn, am always thinking of you and helpin you to secure eternal life." Mary told St. Dominic, "One day, through the Rosry and Scapular, I will save the world." What wonderful promises from our Blessed Mother!

This recipe is from "Building the Family Cookbook" by, Suzanne Fowler. It is named for OL of Mt. Carmel because oranges and cinnamon are found in the area of Mount Carmel itself.

OL of Mt. Carmel Orange Ring

1/2 c orange marmelade
2 T chopped walnuts
1 c brown sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
2 (12 oz) cans refrigerated buttermilk flaky biscuits
1/2 c butter, melted

Heat oven to 350. Grease 12 cup bundt pan. Spoon the marmelade into the bottom of the bundt pan & sprinkle with walnuts. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside. Separate the biscuits & dip each one in the melted butter and then in the sugar mixture. Stand the biscuits on edge in the greased pan, spacing evenly. Sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture & drizzle with remaining butter. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for a few minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Hot topping may spill out the sidese, so be careful.
