Recipe: Monkey Bread

Image courtesy of

Due to my 20th wedding anniversary yesterday, this week's recipe was postponed a day.

This is a yummy recipe with a fun name! I haven't made this in ages. I recently stumbled on the recipe while flipping through my handmade recipe book. I used to make it for my kids when they were little. They been asking me why I don't make it anymore. Well, the fact is it's too tempting for me. I'd end up gaining 10 lbs nibbling on this stuff! Sorry, I don't have my own pic of this recipe so I borrowed the image from Pillsbury.  Just typing up the recipe makes me want to make this again soon (cool weather is the perfect time to do it!).

Monkey Bread
4 cans Pillsbury refrigerated biscuit dough (10 per can)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

Grease or spray 12-cup Bundt pan. Mix granulated sugar and cinnamon in 1-gallon bag. Separate dough into 10 biscuits; cut each in quarters. Shake quarters in bag to coat; place in pan. Mix butter and brown sugar; pour over biscuit pieces. Bake at 350°F for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Turn upside down; pull apart to serve (do not cut - you pick it apart just like a monkey!). Serve warm.

*Note: Store brand biscuits work just as well as brand name and and they're a lot cheaper.
