Monkey bread is a sweet, and sticky bread made using a simple caramel sauce and store-bought biscuits. It is a classic breakfast, and snack. Kid, adults, everyone loves monkey bread.
Monkey bread is sinfully easy to make. It only requires 5 ingredients, and takes almost no time. If you have never experienced monkey bread, make it today!
4 cans of regular sized biscuits
1 1/2 sticks of butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
3 tbsp cinnamon
To Make the Monkey Bread:
Grease a bunt or tube pan. In a ziploc bag mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
Cut the biscuits into halves and quarters, shake in the cinnamon sugar, and layer in the pan. Continue this process until you have cut up and sugar-coated the biscuits.
Pre-heat the oven to 350 F.
Melt the butter and brown sugar, boil for a few minutes (or until it starts to darken slightly) then pour over the biscuits.
Bake for 20-30 minutes.
Let the pan cool down for 10-15 minutes before you flip it on to a plate!
The Final Result: Butter and sugar bliss!
The bottom (top when you pull it out of the oven) is chewy and crispy.
But, when you flip it out of the pan it looks even more amazing. The caramel sauce runs down the sides and you can see how it perfectly caramelized the top of the bread.
Next time: I want to layer in some dried cherries and macadamia nuts.
