Monkey Bread on my Mind

December 29, 2017 | Leave your thoughts

The Christmas season is filled with tradition. And as families merge and grow, in come, even more, traditions. Growing up, one of my favorite traditions was gathering around the table and sharing in Christmas breakfast together as a family. I can remember the aromas that would ensue and the chit-chat that would flood the air. Eggs, bacon, corned beef hash, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and lots of OJ would cover the table. Although, the food never would last long because each of us kids would scarf it down in order to get to our favorite part, opening gifts of course.

Now that I have my own family, creating memories like these are so important to me. When my husband and I got married, he shared with me one of his favorite family Christmas traditions; monkey bread. I have always loved monkey bread, so adding it to our Christmas breakfast was just the icing on the cake.

This year my daughter got to experience the glory of said monkey bread, for the very first time! Today I want to share it with you so that you too can enjoy the delectable greatness of this cinnamon sugar delight!

Monkey Bread

Ingredients:

2 cans of biscuits (raw)

1/2 cup of sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

1 cup of brown sugar

1 1/2 sticks of butter

Preheat oven to 350°. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon. Cut biscuit dough into fours and coat each piece with the cinnamon sugar. As pieces are coated, drop them into a greased bundt pan evenly filling it. Once all pieces are in the pan, melt butter and combine with brown sugar. Stir brown sugar and melted butter together until completely combined, then pour over the dough pieces. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden. Let cool for about 10 min and then using a plate, flip bundt over and enjoy!
