I come from a family of dessert lovers. Well, really a family who just loves eating anything remotely resembling a sweet, carb filled after dinner or anytime treat. I personally love all things gooey, chewy, creamy, dreamy, scooped, fried or baked. There aren’t too many sweets that I would turn away.
One of my favorite snacks to make is Monkey Bread! The hot, gooey, syrupy goodness is only part of my love affair with this particular recipe. The other part is the crunchy crust that forms on the top of the ring when baked but ends up on the bottom when you invert the ring on a plate. Pure deliciousness! Wow, I’m really getting hungry for some now.
This recipe is so easy to make and uses Pillsbury Refrigerated Biscuits which means no major cleanup! And you probably already have the rest of the ingredients in your pantry. Get the kiddos to help, too! I hope you love it as much as my family does.
- 2 Large cans Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk Biscuits
- 2 Tbsp. Butter or I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Light
- 1/3 Cup Pancake Syrup
- 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon
- Non-Stick Cooking Spray
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a bundt pan generously with non-stick spray and set aside. In a small microwavable bowl melt butter. Add pancake syrup to melted butter and stir to combine the two. Pour about half the melted mixture into the bundt pan. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Working with one tube of biscuits at a time, tear each biscuit in to small bite sized pieces and coat in the sugar/cinnamon mix. Lay the pieces evenly in the bottom of the bundt pan. Repeat with the second tube. Depending on the size of your bundt pan you may not be able to get all of the biscuits in. I usually end up with one loner so you can either save and bake it or pitch it. Take the remaining butter mixture and pour it over the biscuits and sprinkle any left over cinnamon/sugar on top. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes. Remove when done and carefully transfer to a plate or pan while still warm. Try not to dig right in because those scrumptious, fluffy dough balls will be HOT! Let cool slightly and enjoy.
