Monkey Bread - in or out of Bed

Before y'all go thinking that Monkey Bread is code for something else, I thought I had better quick share this recipe. There is such a thing as monkey bread and it is our family's favorite - as well as a Thanksgiving morning tradition for at least one other! It is very yummy, and so simple.
Monkey Bread
1 pkg. of canned biscuits (4 cans, any kind)
1 cup of sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 stick of butter, melted

Mix sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl or large ziploc baggie. Cut biscuits into quarters, separate pieces and toss in sugar and cinnamon mixture, and then arrange loosely in a bundt pan. After all the biscuits are coated and put in pan, pour remaining sugar mixture over the top, and then cover evenly with melted butter. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Let it cool for about 5 minutes - and use a large spatula to swat your family away while it cools, the turn out onto a plate.

It is the BEST when it is warm! Yum.

  4. We have been on a monkey bread kick lately. Like 2 or 3 a week! It's cheap, easy, and feeds the band and their friends. OH, by the way...I bring monkey bread to the Chapel Thanksgiving breakfast and have heard from many that you use to do the same. See how you've rubbed off on me without me even knowing it??!?! Ahhhh!!!


  5. I try hard NOT to make this stuff. I have tried to excise it from my mind.

    I become completely out of control when this stuff is in the house.

    I walk buy, snitch a little piece, one little piece won't hurt right?

    UGH, then the whole thing is gone.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Monkey bread!

  6. I'm the unknown who deleted the last 2 attempts at this comment. I can't figure out how to make my moniker appear, so let it be. My comment was, if I was president I would mandate monkey bread for all...now who are you going to vote for?! James

  7. OHHH that looks yummy, my kids would definitely like that, we'll have to try it.

    Sorry if I was being presumptuous, it was my attempt at humor :)

  8. We've even used the canned cinnamon rolls in place of the biscuits for extra cinnamon-y flavor!

  9. ooh, I haven't made this in a long time ... I saw an Oprah show where they talked about how those refrigerated biscuits literally caused wrinkles, and I haven't brought myself to eat them since ... :(

  10. Hey!
    I'm totally making that for after dinner tonight! Thanks for reminding me how good that stuff is!
    On another front... how do you get your playlist to start automatically when someone opens your page? Mine just "sits there" until you click it.

  11. This looks so delicious! I love the big spatula part to swat away the family!


Awaiting your words......
