Monkey Bread Recipe – 2 Easy Steps and SO Good!
My kids used to get SO excited when I would pull out this super simple recipe for Monkey Bread. You don't have to make it in a bundt pan (although I think it makes it the most fun that way!) and it's such an easy recipe that kids of all ages can help.
(No idea how we ever got pretty pictures of this girl because she would always just make ridiculous faces every single time, but she was happy way back when with the monkey bread idea too!)
When that plate is pulled out there's just something special that happens around the whole table. It's also perfect for plating Monkey Bread 🙂
Here's how to make monkey bread if you'd like to treat your family today . . .
- refrigerated biscuits
- brown sugar
- butter or margarine
- white sugar
- pam cooking spray
- confectioners' sugar
You do NOT have to use a bundt pan for this recipe if you don't want to. We always do because it makes it look really pretty in addition to tasting amazing!
Start by cutting your biscuits into quarters and coating them with a mixture of 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. You can do this in a bowl or put together in a gallon bag and shake them up.
Melt your butter and then mix with your brown sugar and cinnamon. Put half of the biscuits onto your greased pan and pour half of the brown sugar mixture over it.
Place the remaining biscuits on top and then remaining brown sugar on top of the biscuits. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 – 4o minutes.
How to make powdered sugar glaze:
While your monkey bread is cooking, mix together 3 Tbsp of butter, 2/3 cup of confectioners' sugar, and 1 Tbsp of water to make your sugar glaze. Once the monkey bread is out of the oven, pour on top and enjoy!
