The first time I ever made monkey bread was in middle school in home economics. I thought that everyone knew what monkey bread was and made it all the time growing up. To my surprise, none of our friends had ever had it before and Joe thought it was another name for banana bread! If you've never made this treat, make it soon! It's so very good and easy to make.
- 3 tubes refrigerated biscuit dough
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute (don't go longer or it will harden). Pour over the biscuits. Bake for 35 minutes (put a cookie sheet underneath in case it expands over the bundt pan). Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Do not cut! The bread just pulls apart.
