Weekend Breakfasts: Monkey Bread Recipe

We had a can of biscuits in our fridge drawer that was just begging to be made into monkey bread. Like seriously, I'd open the refrigerator and hear, "Hey, hey! You there! Coat us with cinnamon and sugar and butter and brown sugar ... mmmmkay?!"

Who am I to turn that down?

So on Saturday morning I made monkey bread for us, and it was too darn delicious not to share here.

+ 1 12oz can refrigerated biscuits
+ 1/3 cup white sugar
+ 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
+ 1/4 cup butter
+ 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
+ almonds and raisins, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray your loaf pan with some non-stick spray. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut biscuits into quarters with a sharp knife. Shake 4 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix at a time. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts and raisins, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along. In the microwave, melt the butter with the brown sugar, about 45 seconds or 1 minute. Pour over the biscuits. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Do not cut! The bread just pulls apart.

Now, tell me that doesn't look amazing?

That can of biscuits is calling you from your fridge, too.
