Monkey Bread

I’ve made this Monkey Bread four times. The first time was while drinking wine and having a movie night with a girlfriend. It was super easy to make and it was seriously delicious. In fact I couldn’t stop thinking about it until I made it a second time with another friend. That time didn’t go so smooth.

We had bought jumbo biscuits because we couldn’t find regular ones…but we still used 3 cans. The end result was brown sugar/butter overflowing onto the bottom of the oven and the house filling up with smoke. Not only did the brown sugar/butter harden and basically ruin the oven, but the sugar pretty much had the house reeking of smoke. Moral of the story: don’t use jumbo biscuits.

The third and fourth times were both a success. Phew! This Monkey Bread is really easy to make, the prep time is no more than 5-10 minutes. The hardest part is waiting for it to bake! It’s perfect for Christmas morning. Just pop it in the oven in the morning then open presents with your family. By the time presents are done the Monkey Bread should be ready. You don’t even need forks…just cut it into slices and use your fingers to pull it into pieces. It’s fun! And really yummy. :)

In fact I’ll probably make it for myself this week…just because. And I’m not embarrassed to admit that.

Here's what you'll need

In a large Ziploc bag add sugar and cinnamon

Quarter the biscuits

Meanwhile melt the butter and brown sugar until you get a smooth, caramely sauce

Looks about right

Shake the biscuits up in the cinnamon-sugar

Pour the biscuits into a bundt pan, spread them evenly around

Pour the butter mixture over top. Make sure to cover all the pieces

It looks like a lot now, but it'll absorb while cooking and keep the monkey bread moist and gooey

Serve Christmas morning for breakfast then snack on the rest for a midnight snack
