If you like cinnamon rolls, the smell of cinnamon rolls, and easy recipes, you’ll love Monkey Bread! And if you’re anything like me, you’ll already have most of the ingredients on hand.
Just look at this masterpiece! Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this in the morning? Especially great during the holidays, monkey bread is sort of like a modified, easier, but just as tasty, cinnamon roll. Just wait until you start smelling the wonderful cinnamon aroma. If you’ve never made this or tasted this, you should. You really should!
Just take some canned biscuits, cinnamon and sugar, butter, more cinnamon and more sugar! It’s so easy. . . a monkey could do it! (Sorry, I had to. The opportunity was there.)
The butter-brown sugar mixture makes a delicious glaze for the bread all on its own! I swear it’s magic.
I suppose if you’re feeling shnazzy you could make an icing to really get your cinnamon roll fix :).
4 cans buttermilk biscuits (10 in a can)
1 c. granulated sugar
