Monkey Bread

I'm really behind on putting my meal plan together for this week.  I hope later this evening to get to work on that.  For tonight's dinner I had to survey the food we have on hand and figure out what to serve.  I decided on "breakfast", and with our eggs and bacon we are going to have some Monkey Bread.  I always refer to our children as my 5 little monkeys so this is the perfect food for them.  It's easy to do, tastes great, and my 5 year old can almost make it entirely by herself.  We think it's super delicious!  It also works out perfectly that I got Pillsbury Grands biscuits last week at Publix for 47 cents a can.  I bought 20 cans so this will be a great way to use some of them.

Monkey Bread

4 cans refrigerated biscuits
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 Tbs cinnamon

  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9-10 inch tube pan.  (I have an actual Monkey Bread mold that my dear brother bought for me.)  

  • Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a medium size Ziploc bag.  Cut the biscuits into halves or quarters and place six to eight biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix.  Shake well.
  • Arrange pieces in the bottom of the greased pan.  Continue layering until all the biscuit pieces are coated and in the pan.

  • In a small saucepan melt the butter with the brown sugar over medium heat.  Boil for 1 minute.  Pour over the layered biscuits. 

  • Bake for 35 min.  Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate.  Pull apart and enjoy!
