Monkey Bread

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great week! Now that winter is OVER and spring visited the east coast for about a month, temperatures are very high and already feels like summer. Great weather means it’s a great time to grill, have family and friends over, and enjoy your food under the sun!

Today, I will be sharing my recipe on Monkey Bread! It is always a hit when it comes to family and friends potluck gatherings or even a great addition to a birthday if you want to do something different besides bake a cake or cupcakes. Very easy and very delicious. Who doesn’t like warm, soft, cinnamon rolls anyway? Let’s get started!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Brown Sugar
  • Butter

Directions:

  1. In a larger ziplock bag, add about 1 cup of sugar and at least 2 table spoons of cinnamon. Mix well.
  2. Cut each Pillsbury biscuit into 4 equal pieces and toss in the cinnamon-sugar bag.FullSizeRender.jpg
  3. Continue to cut each biscuit until the first can is finished and toss in the bag to evenly coat with the mixture. FullSizeRender-6.jpg
  4. Mix well.
  5. In a coated baking pan, carefully transfer each biscuit piece and arrange layer by layer. Overlapping is fine.FullSizeRender-2.jpg
  6. Repeat steps 3 – 5 with the second can of biscuits.
  7. In a small sauce pan, add about 1/2 a cup of butter and let it melt over low heat.FullSizeRender-8.jpgFullSizeRender-9.jpg
  8. Add about 4 tablespoons of brown sugar and stir lightly to make the glaze.
  9. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  10. Pour the butter-brown sugar glaze over the biscuits in the pan to coat.FullSizeRender-15.jpg
  11. Place in oven at 375 degree F for 40 minutes.
  12. When ready to serve, flip the pan upside down on a large dish so the glaze is now on top.
  13. Dig in while it’s still gooey and hot!FullSizeRender-19.jpg

Suggestions, Substitutions, Tips & Tricks:

  • 2 cans of biscuits will usually serve about 8 people
  • Use any kind of baking tray you have. The proper way is to bake it in a bundt cake pan but who follows the rules nowadays?! I sometimes use a circular pan or just a regular square one.
  • If you’re not serving right away after it’s fresh out of the oven, do not flip it upside down just yet. When ready to serve, flip it on a large dish and microwave for 1 minute.

This dessert is very high in calories but it’s so well deserved once in a while! Go make some monkey bread!
