Making Monkey Bread With the Kids



As I mentioned in a previous post, my son is now taking cooking classes at school. He's in 7th grade (which I still can't believe!), and came home talking about his cooking class. He made a 7 layer dip which I posted here, if you want to read about it.

But anyway, it made my daughter a little jealous, I think, because then she wanted to try to make something. So I went through some of my cookbooks to try to find something that would be different, yet not to hard to make. And we came up with Monkey Bread!

I remember making Monkey Bread when I was little. And remembered it was delicious. So I bought all the ingredients, and my daughter, son and to tell the truth it was actually my husband who helped make it. I didn't really help in the actual making of it, but I did in the eating of it. It was as delicious as I remember it.

Here is the recipe we used: 4 pkgs. Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 c. brown sugar
Cinnamon

Combine sugar and cinnamon. Cut biscuits into quarters and roll in sugar mixture. Place into a well-greased bundt pan. Combine melted butter, brown sugar and a touch of cinnamon; mix well and pour over biscuits. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 min. Serve upside-down. Serves 10-12.
