Monkeying Around!

So a little while back I made some monkey bread and boy was it delicious.  I thought I would share the recipe with you guys!  It’s great for breakfast which is when I made it, but it’s a great dessert too with some whipped cream or ice cream.  It tastes buttery and sugary and it’s a serious comfort food.  If you’re on a diet, you should either forget about this recipe or just take a little diet vacation and monkey around!

Here’s what you need:

* Brown Sugar // 1/2cup will be needed
* 2 sticks of butter (1 cup)
* Bundt Cake Pan (or a spring form works well too)
* Cinnamon // 2-3 teaspoons
* 3 cans of Buttermilk Biscuits (the non-flaky ones)
* Sugar! // 1 cup

Alternatively you can also get the Grand’s Giant Biscuits and use only 2 cans.  Just make sure they’re not the flaky ones.

Go ahead and preheat your oven to 350 because the prep will take no more than 10-15 minutes.

POP!

Pop those cans open! The first thing you will do is cut up the biscuits into tiny pieces.  This is what makes the spaces and makes it easy to pull apart after baked.  They just need to be bite size pieces.

Once they’re all cut up just grap a big zip lock bag and dump in your sugar and cinammon.  Add the pieces to the bag and zip it up and shake what your mama gave ya!

Shake, shake, shake!  You’re done when the biscuits are completely coated.

So now it’s time to get it ready to put in the oven.  Let’s make the butter mixture.  Take the 2 sticks of butter and melt it in a pot, you could also do this in the microwave.  Once it’s melted add brown sugar and mix.

Put the sugar coated biscuit pieces in your cake pan and pour the butter mixture over the top.  It will slide down into the cracks and soak into the dough.  Mmmmm!  Now at first it’s going to look like a lot of butter.  It covers the biscuits but it will cook off and soak in.  It creates a nice crunchy coating so make sure the top is well covered.

Now bake it for about 30-40 minutes until the crust is a deep golden brown color.  It should end up like this:

This went really good with a cup of strong black coffee!  This is super easy and so good, people won’t believe it only took you 10 minutes to throw together!  Try it out and let me know what you thought!
