Fridays are for Monkey Bread

IMG_2181

It was just that sort of morning where everyone was craving something sweet for breakfast.  I thought of several things and then landed on monkey bread.  I haven’t made monkey bread in a long time.  It sure would taste good with a cup of hot coffee.

Turn the oven on to 350 degrees.  Buy 3 cans of biscuits.  Don’t buy the flaky biscuits.  Cut each biscuit into fourths.

Drop each biscuit piece into a one gallon bag that has 1 cup of sugar and 4 teaspoons of cinnamon in it.

Shake up the bag and be sure all of the biscuit pieces are coated with the sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Place all the coated biscuit pieces in a greased bundt pan.

Place 2 sticks of butter in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave until the butter is melted.

Add 1/2 cup of brown sugar to the melted butter.  Stir until the brown sugar dissolves.

Pour all of the brown sugar/butter mixture on top of the biscuit pieces.  Bake the monkey bread for 30 to 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Take the monkey bread out of the oven after 30 to 45 minutes.  Let it sit for 30 minutes.  Do not try to invert it because the sauce will be too runny and it will run all over the place.

At the end of the 30 minutes, invert the monkey bread on a plate.  The sauce will run down the sides of the monkey bread.  By the way, I have no idea why this is called monkey bread.  There were no monkeys used in the making of this bread.
