2 (7.5 ounce) packages
buttermilk biscuit dough, cut into quarters
ripe bananas, coarsely chopped
packed light brown sugar
Excellent! Per the last review, I reduced the white sugar to 1/4 c., the butter to 1/4c plus 1 T, and the brown sugar to 1/4c plus 1 T. Due to the sweetness of the bananas this is all you need. I also used one large can of reduced fat wheat grands biscuits and sliced almonds in place of the pecans. My husband, two-year son and I loved it, ate the whole pan.
Good. Goota like bananas. Would love it without too.
I have made this twice for Christmas and we just love it. I fet that it just was not enough of the sause mixture in the middle of the bread the first time. I made an extra mixture and drizzled it as I layered it with Biscuits,Bananas then sause. Perfect, not dry in the middle and then poured the rest over the top. Be sure to have a pan under as you bake it .It will spill over while cooking.
I made this today...very good...I made one with chopped apples, and one with bananas. Both were excellent...you just need to place loaf pan on baking sheet to catch drips, cover the top with foil during the last 10 minutes of baking.
I made this last night on a wim, and it was excellent! So easy to prepare as well. I served it warm with ice cream and caramel drizzled on top. My boyfriend loved it!! I had to bake mine for about 50 minutes tho.
Delicious! I couldn't figure out what type of biscuits came in 7.5 ounce cans, so I just got the 9.5 ounce "butter me nots" store brand. Worked out just fine. Used a pizza cutter to cut the biscuits as suggested by another review, definitely recommend doing that. As for the taste, well my husband and I (along with my 3-year old son) finished almost the entire thing right away!! Definitely decadent, one I'll make again.
Followed the recipe exactly for a large family breakfast and this turned out wonderful. The sweetness of the traditional monkey bread is cut by the bananas and less sugar. Use a bundt pan to cook it more evenly inside and out instead of a loaf pan. This also spreads the sauce more evenly and melts the sugar. The easy biscuit shortcut makes this a great brunch item or breakfast for a crowd on short notice. Fantastic!
I love this version of "Monkey Bread", I make it as followed, but turn it into a chunky monkey with chocolate chips!!!
