My kids have always been breakfast people. They are pretty self sufficient when it comes to making something for themselves but every so often I like to make them something special. This is usually when other kids spend the night and they all want something to eat but no one knows what!
Monkey bread is so easy to make. It literally takes two of those little tubes of refrigerated biscuits that they sell in the grocery store, some brown sugar, cinnamon, some butter and thirty minutes. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Start by cutting the biscuits into 4 pieces each. This does not have to be done individually. I usually stack 2-3 on top of each other and cut them into 4 pieces, separating them as I go. There is no precision to this – the pieces all end up roughly the same size no matter what you do.
In a small bowl (or even a ziploc bag if you’d prefer) mix a cup of brown sugar with 2 tbsp of cinnamon. Coat the pieces in this mixture and toss them into a bundt pan or other small baking pan. There is no need to grease the pan – just layer them on top of each other as they fall.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and drizzle over the coated biscuit pieces. Pop it into the preheated oven for around 30 minutes until cooked through and browned.
Remove from the oven, flip over onto a plate and remove from the baking pan.
This is best served warm and eaten by pulling pieces off one little chunk at a time. So easy and so good as a breakfast treat. Enjoy!
