So, did you know that normally on Saturdays I post about food - well, maybe you didn't know because I've been slacking on it lately. So here I am, ready to jump back on board. With something so simple I wondered if it's even worth blogging about - Monkey Bread.
I'm sure everyone knows Monkey Bread, but just in case - -
grab a can of biscuits, and cut them into pieces - I just use kitchen scissors and cut them in fourths, but any way will work. Then set up a work station and grab a kid to help. You'll need a bowl full of butter, a bowl full of cinnamon sugar (just stir a couple spoons of cinnamon into a bowl of sugar), and a baking pan - here I'm using a bread pan.
To make it, take a biscuit hunk, dip it butter, roll it in cinnamon sugar, then drop it in the pan. That's it. Pile up the pieces in the pan then bake for about 5 minutes longer than it says on the can.
I should have taken a perfectly staged picture of Monkey Bread beauty, but I didn't - - here's the half eaten pan at the point were I realized, oh yeah, take a picture:
Just scoop out and enjoy. If you want to get really fancy, take some powdered sugar and stir in a little milk to make icing to dip the Monkey Bread in.
So, how about you all - - did you grow up eating Monkey Bread?? Growing up, we'd have it made in a bundt pan - that's fun.
