Ingredients

  • packages refrigerated biscuit dough (12 ounces each)
  • 1  Cup  white sugar
  • 2  Teaspoons  ground cinnamon
  • 1/2  Cup  margarine or butter
  • 1  Cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  Cup  chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2  Cup  raisins (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9- or 10-inch Bundt pan.

Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut the biscuits into quarters. Shake 6 to 8 biscuit pieces in the sugar-cinnamon mix. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts and/or raisins, arrange them among the biscuit pieces as you go along, pushing some into the dough.

In a small saucepan, melt the margarine with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the biscuits. Bake for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn over onto a plate. Do not cut! The bread just pulls apart.

Monkey Bread Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Monkey Bread Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
