How to make Monkey bread

Making monkey bread is incredibly easy. It’s probably one of the easiest breakfast dishes to make. The most important thing is not to complicate monkey bread. 


Ingredients you’ll need to make monkey bread

2 cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers refrigerated biscuits
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 + 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
Handful of roasted slivered almonds (optional)
Handful of raisins (optional)
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar, light or dark (add upto 1/2 Cup if you prefer it sweeter)
3/4 cup melted butter
How To Make it
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a bundt pan with butter or cooking spray and keep it aside.
In a bowl, whisk together the white sugar and 1/2 tsp grounded cinnamon  and set aside.
In a sauce pan, melt butter and brown sugar together. Add 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Whisk it briskly till the sugar melt. Keep it aside.
Pop the cans of biscuit and separate out the biscuits. Cut each disc into 4 quarters and roll the quarters in the cinnamon sugar.
Layer the sugar coated dough pieces in the greased bundt pan. Throw in some almonds and raisins between the layers.
Once done, pour in the melted butter and brown sugar mix all over the layered dough pieces.
Bake in the oven at 350 F for 30 to 32 minutes till done.
Once done let it cool in the pan itself before taking it out. Serve warm. Add a dollop of vanilla ice cream for some added indulgence.

    Yumm I like the technique of pouring in the melted butter/brown sugar mixture. I have always rolled each dough piece in butter then cinnamon/sugar. this looks better.
