I found this recipe over at the Pioneer Woman and it just might be the best thing I've ever eaten in my life. Oh it is so good!! I made some a couple of days ago, and posted some pictures on my blog.

Monkey Bread

1/2 cup brown sugar
2 sticks of butter (1 cup)
2-3 teaspoons cinnamon

3 cans buttermilk biscuits (non-flakey)

1 cup sugar

Open all 3 cans of biscuits and cut biscuits into quarters. Combine the regular sugar with the cinnamon in a gallon ziploc bag and shake to mix. Drop all of the biscuit pieces into the bag and shake to coat. Take the biscuit pieces and spread them into a greased bundt pan. Melt the 2 sticks of butter over med-high heat and add the brown sugar.  Mix and then pour over the biscuit pieces in the bundt pan.  Bake 350 degrees, 30-40 minutes. Cool for about 15 minutes and then turn over on a plate. It should slide right out.

This sounds exactly like the version I had years ago that was delicious.  There were pecans in it as well.  Of course, there are upteem ways to do this, all good!

Here's another variation on the basic recipe! 

Every search I made for this turned up something using store bought biscuits.  I don't see why you can't use home made buscuits though.  

We had a member looking for a Bluebarry Monkey Bread recipe and this is what I found, I got it from http://www.cooksrecipes.com, which has lots of good things.

Blueberry Monkey Bread

2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
4 (10-ounce) packages refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1 1/4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries , divided use
3/4 cup (1 1/4 sticks) butter or margarine
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350*F (175*C). Thoroughly grease a 10 x 4-inch tube pan.
  2. Mix 2/3 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. Cut biscuits in quarters. Roll each piece in sugar mixture.
  4. Arrange about one-fourth of the sugared-biscuit pieces and 1/4 cup of the blueberries in an even layer in pan. Repeat three more times.
  5. In saucepan melt butter; stir in brown sugar, the remaining 1/4 cup blueberries and cinnamon. Cook, stirring frequently until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour hot syrup over biscuit/blueberry mixture in pan.
  6. Bake for 65 minutes or until done. Turn out onto serving plate.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.

BravoShimmy…that is the recipe!  Although, when I prepared this bread, I used my own biscuits.  Thanks for finding it for me!

This could be used with any fruit you like baked, I would imagine……… does sound good!  But tonight anything sweet sounds good and I want it all! Laugh

Trust me, this recipe is Heavenly!  My baby sister gave birth when she was only seventeen; I learned to bake this so she would have good “flow”….yes, she breast fed my nephew, who is a very healthy, smart two year old; I've started teaching him some spanish!  But back to the recipe, it is delightful!Fork

My kindergarten son came home with this recipe (well, more years ago than I can remember) (he is now in his 30's). I still have the original copy that he brought home.  It has been a favorite of my family's.  I recently ran across one for Chorolate Monkey Bread that is good but awfully sweet.

I don't think that I have bought canned biscuits in 40 years, they are so easy to make. I love this kind of “fun” bread.

Guess my hangup is simply trying to figure out how many scoops of quickmix it takes to make one can of refrigerator biscuits!     wink

About 1 1/2 cups will make a can of biscuits….but I just go ahead and do 2…so much easier on the brain laugh

I actually use a 1 loaf recipe of GMA bread dough to make monkey bread and make small rolls.

Went shopping and got the stuff to make the blueberry version. It sounds so interesting. If we don’t like it, my husband just takes it to work and it will disappear. yes Of course, I usually send stuff that is so delicious that if it stays at home I will be sure to eat it all. I love to bake, but I don’t want to get any closer to being square (as wide as I am tall).

 

Update:  WARNING! stop

This is so delicious. And I'm not a huge blueberry fan. Here's the other problem….my fingers are purple….and I can't stop eating it. HELP ME!
