Monkey Bread


Ha! I have a real recipe. Wouldn't have even thought so myself, except that I make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. It's in the oven and my darn family is asleep, so I'm going to share it.

MONKEY BREAD

4 packages of buttermilk biscuit tubes
1 cup sugar (divided)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar

Take 4 packages of buttermilk biscuit tubes (10 per roll) and cut each roll into 4 pieces. Drop roll pieces into 1 cup sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon. drop sugar coated pieces into a well buttered bundt pan (don't squish roll pieces when placing them in the bundt pan).

Put 1/2 cup of the left over sugar/cinnamon mix and 1/2 cup packed brown sugar and 1 cup of butter (2 sticks) into small sauce pan.

Bring this mixture just to a boil, take off heat right away. Carefully drizzle over the roll pieces.


Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 min.


Cool slightly in an upright position, then tip pan over onto a plate to remove monkey pull-apart bread.

Re: Monkey Bread


That sure looks a lot better than the bowl of cheerios I had for breakfast! I'll have to try it sometime - thanks for the recipe... one questions, though - any idea why it's called monkey bread?

Re: Monkey Bread


I think because you tear off pieces with your hands to eat.
It's yummy & easy, and I'm not a chef by nature (see my dip extraordinaire thread) emoticon

Re: Monkey Bread


CG, fancy recipes do not a chef make....
Simple is better.
I've seen your dip extraordinaire thread.
Some of my recipes look complicated.
The one that gives me the most trouble is my Fritter's, damn things just won't cooperate-
on the other hand today the butter and bourbon turkey turned out well ...
One way to make tasty plain mashed taters- is use the same pot to make them that was used for 'stove top stuffing' be sure to leave a smidge of stuffing in the pot...
Another way to fake taters is to use boxed- but add some lumps from a real potato-
and for canned yams- made with butter and and molasses- you can tone this strong mix down by adding some of the flakes of the boxed taters- to taste...
There are always short cuts.
The complicated recipies are best left for non-large meals... unlike TG
I did everything I had to do on 2 burners and one stove, and made way to much.
:mrgreen:

Re: Monkey Bread


Cowgirl! You're recipe was AWESOME! I actually set up my laptop on the kitchen counter while I made it!

The only tricky part was trying to use an angelfood cake pan because they're comprised of those two separate pieces which aren't exactly water ([sign in to see URL] butter mixture) tight. But I put the pan on a cookie sheet to pick up any of the leaks and it worked just fine. IT was so great for Christmas morning - the house smelled SOOOO good!

My family was so impressed with me (I'm not known for my cooking skills!)! I owe it all to you! Thanks!
