~ Monkey Bread Recipe ~
3 (12 oz) packages refrigerated biscuit dough
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 margerine (I used butter)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I used pecans because that's what I had)
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease one 9 or 10 inch tube/Bundt pan.
2) Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic ziplock bag. Cut biscuits into quarters. Shake 6 - 8 biscuit pieces in teh sugar cinnamon mix. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts and raisins, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along.
3) In a small saucepan, melt the margerine with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over biscuits.
4) Bake at 250 degrees for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Do not cut! The bread just pulls apart.
*Variations I Did*
~ I made a little more than called for and used 3 (16 oz) giant biscuit packages and just doubled the brown sugar and butter mixed.
~ Since I didn't have a tube or Bundt pan - I used two round cake pans. I put 1 1/2 biscuit pkgs in each pan- this worked GREAT to ensure even baking throughout biscuits and then when they were finished - I turned over one on the cake plate...then turned over the 2nd on right on top!
~ I used pecans instead of walnuts - since that's what I had on hand. It was just as amazing for sure! I didn't use raisins this time...maybe next! :-)
HELLO: Gooey mass of cinnamon, sugar, nuts and oh so deliciousness!!
