Monkey Bread

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.

It was always a favorite of mine. It was also made in a bundt pan. We called it Bubble Cake.

I had never heard of it till I got married. My husband grew up eating it. His mother used a slightly different recipe, but the concept is still the same. She also made hers in a bundt pan and they called it Bubble Bread. Now I hear about it a lot and down south, where I grew up, everyone calls it monkey bread. My hubby is from up north, so I wonder if the naming has anything to do with what part of the country you are from.

I have just recently had my first try of monkeybread. I will say that it is so addicting. You can't just have on piece or 10. Great for baking with kids too! Thanks for sharing.


I don't think I've ever tasted monkey bread. I'm not sure I should start, for it looks addicting! :-)

I never had it as a child, but I make it for my kiddos. Of course it's a hit! It's so gooooood!

I am SO GLAD you posted this! I'm always looking for tried and true Monkey Bread recipes! My husband's grandma made it for him and so I need to try new recipes to make sure I get it just right for him. I want it to be as good as he remembers it. THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS!!! I'm so excited to try it!

Mandy! WE LOVE Monkey bread! YUM!!! Can't wait to try this!!!
