How to Make Monkey Bread
Making monkey bread is easy and quick with only a few steps.
- Preheat the oven and grease your bundt pan.
- Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a zip-top bag and cut the biscuits into quarters. Add the cut biscuits to the bag and toss to coat evenly.
- Place the coated biscuits into the pan.
- Melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat and let boil for 1 minute to thicken the sauce. Pour evenly over the biscuits.
- Cook for 35 to 40 minutes or until the biscuits begin to brown. Remove and let sit for 5 minutes before turning out onto a pan.
How to Keep the Bread from Sticking
Bundt pans are the best pans to use when preparing monkey bread, however, choose one with a very simple style and few crevices. This will allow the biscuits to expand easily and keep the simple shape. Next, generously coat the pan in oil or butter. I prefer to use a coconut out and sprinkle some of the remaining cinnamon sugar on the pan just before adding the coated biscuits. The sugar will still be warm 5 minutes after removing the pan from the oven, which will help it to easily slide out of the pan and sit beautifully on your dish.
