Monkey Bread

Posted by Vanessa in Cooking, March 19, 2010

This is another breakfast treat I’m sure most of you know how to make.  But for those few that don’t, I didn’t want you missing out any longer.

The Phoenix loves monkey bread.  It makes him super happy.

Hey, maybe I’ll make this the next time I want him to take care of our little birds so I can have a girls night out.

Yes, it’s settled.  This is my new woo-ing tool.

Maybe I’ll even try for a cruise.

Okay, that might be going too far.

Now I’ve read a few recipes on other foodie blogs for monkey bread and they all make their own dough.  But quite honestly, I don’t think you need to.  It’s really good with the refrigerated biscuit dough and so much easier that way.  And I’m always for making stuff from scratch, but this time, I don’t think it’s necessary.

So go ahead and spoil your family with a special breakfast treat soon.  They deserve it.

You can also make this yummy breakfast in individual ramekins so everyone can have their own.  Just decrease your bake time by about half.  Cute, cute, cute.  But I must say, The Phoenix is a much bigger fan of the big monkey bread because there’s so many more gooey inside pieces.  I think I must concur.
