Monkey Bread I
I knew the oven would be fully occupied on Christmas day, so I prepared this on Christmas Eve to have on Christmas morning. We all LOVED it! Even baked the night before and reheated, it was excellent! My father is very, very set in his ways and an extremely tough crowd when it comes to 'new' foods. He kept going back for more! I used 2 cans of the Grands biscuits instead of three regular and it was the perfect amount. It didn't look like it at first glance, but man, how it swells! The only other change I made was to use a bundt pan instead of a tube pan. Laid out some wax paper and flipped it while still hot, as other suggested to let the goo ooze throughout. Delicious! This is seriously one of the easiest and tastiest things ever. I served it with a side of frosting from Clone of a Cinnabon recipe on this site...smearing it on top seemed like it would make it a little too sweet. But the two compliment each other wonderfully. As we speak, I have another in the oven to give to our neighbor for snowblowing our walkway. You won't regret trying this recipe!
Note: If you plan to flip your monkey bread after baking, reserve some of the brown sugar mixture and reheat with a little more butter after the bread has finished baking. Pour over the bread to glaze the top and sprinkle with nuts...makes it look at great as it tastes.
