What's there to do while waiting for our monkey to arrive? Make monkey bread of course! Every time I see a picture of monkey bread I start drooling, so I decided to take a whack at it. If I'd known how easy monkey bread was to make, I would've been making them for years. This monkey bread may become the birthday morning breakfast tradition for the baby. Sounds like a good idea to me!
2 tubes of 8 Grand Buttermilk Biscuits
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 stick of butter
1/4-1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup of chopped pecans (optional)
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Lightly spray a pound cake pan with baking spray
-Add the brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, and pecans to a large ziplock bag (the freezer bag size). Seal the bag and shake to combine.
-Separate all of the biscuits and slice each biscuit into 6 pieces (like you're slicing a pizza), and add to the ziplock bag.
-Seal the bag and shake to coat each of the biscuit triangles with the sugar mixture.
-Pour the dough mixture into an even layer in the pound cake pan.
-Melt the butter and honey in a small microwave-safe bowl and spoon evenly over the top of the dough.
-Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
-Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes
-Give the pan a little shake and flip onto serving plate. Let sit for another 5-10 minutes before devouring...just as a cruel joke :)
