Saturday Sweetness.

I have seen several recipes for Monkey Bread and always wanted to try it. One day I was at the grocery store and saw this recipe on the back of a Pillsbury biscuit package and thought I would give it try. It seemed easy enough and we had all the ingredients already at home.
The night I gave it a try we were having a fairly easy dinner {can't remember what it was but I made the bread as dinner was cooking so it must have been something easy}.

3/4 granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 cans(7.5 oz each) Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits
1/2 cup butter or margarine melted
3/4 cup packed brown sugar


1. GREASE or SPRAY 12-cup bundt cake pan.
2. MIX granulated sugar and Cinnamon in 1 gallon bag. Cut each biscuit into quarters. Shake quarters in bag to coat; place in pan. Mix butter and brown sugar;pour over biscuit pieces
3. BAKE at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool  minutes. Turn upside down. SERVE WARM
Don't you just love the 50 year old angel food cake pan?! I used to have a bundt cake pan but it ended up the donation pile a couple years because I just never used {we are limited on cabinet space}. Now just within the last year I have went to go look for it several times forgetting I tossed it. The angel food cake pan is my Grandma's.

And yes folks that is a paper plate, I don't need anymore dirty dishes.

The only part that took awhile was cutting the biscuits into quarters and tossing in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. And this was the night Easton took off his poopy diaper and started playing with it {he was poking a toy screw in it} Anyway so it was bath time right before dinner that night.
It turned out pretty good and even Ryan liked it. We both thought a little icing would have perfect drizzled on the top. So next time I think I am going to make some icing to go with it.

What's your version of Monkey Bread? I would love to try another recipe.
