Monkey Bread


I know I have been a bit of a blogging recluse as of lately.  My brain is fried.  I have no idea where it has been.  Has anyone seen it?  If so...there is a reward offered for it.  I would really like it back.

 Anyway...I guess along with a missing brain, I have been living in a cave, because I have never had "Monkey Bread".  Can you believe it?  If you haven't had it...get ready for pure awesome.  So good.  So yummy. So easy. 

Make it...the monkeys in you life will love you for it!
With these ingredients...how could you go wrong??

Cut your biscuits into fours.

Place your cut biscuits into a bag and coat with cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Place coated biscuits into a baking dish.  ( A bundt pan is awesome for this...but I don't have one. )

Next, mix my two favorite ingredients together and on the stove.  When nice and melted and thick, pour on to coated biscuits.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes . Pull apart and enjoy!
These are some of the little monkeys that enjoyed it!

The Recipe:
Monkey Bread
4 cans refrigerator biscuits (about 40)
1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup pecans, raisins and/or coconut, if desired
Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Pour sugar and cinnamon into a plastic bag and mix.
Add biscuit pieces, several at a time; shake to coat well.
Place pieces in a buttered tube or Bundt pan until all are used.
Sprinkle layers with nuts, raisins or coconut.
Bring brown sugar and butter to a boil in saucepan. Cool 10 minutes, then pour over top of biscuits.
Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes. Allow to cool 15 minutes before removing from pan. Turn upside down to serve.

Hi! I just saw that you are interning with the awesome Rachael! She is a wonderful friend & you will learn loads from her. Your blog looks great as does this Monkey Bread. Perhaps we can all meet up some day, I live in the OC.

I've always wanted to make this, but I always fink out because I don't have a bundt pan. Maybe this weekend. They look awesome!
