Monkey Bread is a holiday necessity in our home! It’s so easy to make and is something that we all enjoy eating for breakfast on a festive day like 4th of July or Christmas. There are always leftovers to munch on throughout the entirety of the day too!
Lately, I’ve been trying to handwrite recipes that I make and put them into a recipe book for my daughter to have when she’s an adult.
Hand writing recipes takes WAY MORE time than just typing them out on a computer, but I think it’ll be more meaningful for her to have things I wrote.
- 4 cans of Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits (not the flaky ones)
- 1 2/3 c. sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/2 sticks butter
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Generously butter a bundt cake pan.
- Mix sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl.
- Melt butter in a measuring cup in the microwave.
- Cut up biscuits, 1 can at a time, roll pieces in cinnamon sugar mixture and layer them in pan.
- After cutting up each can of biscuits, top the layer with some melted butter. Continue until all cans are cut up and layered.
- Pour remaining butter over the top of the pan and sprinkle some extra cinnamon sugar on top.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes, maybe a little longer if necessary. It should be golden brown on top.
- Remove pan from oven and let it cool slightly prior to serving.
Just seeing this pic is making me want more!
Is your mouth watering yet?
It’s a tradition in our house, to have “Monkey Bread” on 4th of July morning. Personally, I find it to be one of the yummiest things in the whole world! This year, I decided to add some BACON to half of it.
Monkey Bread basics:
*2 sticks of melted butter
*6 rolls of biscuits (I used store brand this time)
*chopped up, crispy bacon (about 1/2 lb)
It’s VERY easy to make. First you need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Next, start to cut up each roll of biscuits, roll each piece in the cinnamon-sugar mixture, then toss into a bundt pan. After each roll of biscuits, I pour some butter over the top of what’s in the pan. The more moist the layers are with butter, the better it will taste. This year I also added crumbled bacon to half of the pan, so I layered the bacon in between the rolls of biscuits. Continue layering everything and at the end, pour the rest of the melted butter over the top of what’s in the pan. (At this point, just try not to think about calories and fat)
It should look something like this. Bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until it’s a little brown and crispy on the top. After it’s done, cut into it and serve a big hunk to everyone. We end up picking at it over the entirety of the day! It even tastes good cold!So what’s something YOU like to eat on the 4th of July?
It was kid tested and kid approved by this girl! 🙂
Happy 4th of July!
