Monkey Bread Recipe

Elvis Elvis

Monkey bread is a fun treat as a snack or dessert.

The classic monkey bread recipe calls for pecans, but of course you can use chopped almonds instead!

You can also layer the biscuits with jam and fruit – strawberries, apricots or raspberries.

And of course there’s chocolate… when isn’t there?

Preheat oven to 350°F

Cut biscuit rolls into quarters. Combine 3/4 cup white sugar with cinnamon.

Roll biscuit quarters in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Layer the biscuits and the pecans in a cake pan or baking dish (bundt pans work best).

In a saucepan, slowly bring milk, remaining 3/4 cup white sugar, brown sugar, and butter to a boil. Remove from heat. Pour over biscuits in the pan. Bake for approximately 30 minutes.
