Monkey Bread

A few years ago, when my son first started going to day care, I discovered the deliciousness that is Monkey Bread. His day care provider made it occasionally for breakfast and after tasting it I demanded to have the recipe.  I saw a recipe for it posted on another site the other day and decided that I had to have it this weekend!  There are lots of variations and different recipes for Monkey Bread, but this is pretty much how I make it (though I rarely measure anymore).


3-4 cans refrigerated biscuits (my bundt pan seems to hold 3 better)
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon (more or less to taste)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 sticks butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Open biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a 1 gallon ziplock bag. Drop biscuit pieces into bag, seal, and shake to coat biscuits with mixture. Place biscuit pieces evenly into bundt pan.

Heat brown sugar and butter (either on stove or microwave) until they blend together and are no longer separated. Pour mixture over the top of biscuit pieces in pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until top is brown.

Let cool for 10-15 minutes, then flip onto plate or serving dish.
