- The estimated time of completing this task is about an hour altogether.
- The skill level of this task is about easy to medium. Almost anyone can make a great batch of Monkey Bread. However, since it requires working with the oven and hot contents and food i strongly suggest that only people over the age of 17 years old make Monkey Bread. Anyone younger than 17 years old should be supervised.
Step 1: Ingredients and Materials
- 1 Stick of Butter
- 8oz of crushed almonds, walnuts or pecans (your choice)
- 1 cup of sugar (strongly suggest having butter at room temperature)
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons cup of cinnamon
- 1 bunt pan
- 1 large sized Ziploc bag
- 1 food scissors
- 1 sheet of wax paper
- 1 measuring cup
Step 2: Preparation
-Grease the bunt pan thoroughly. (You can do this task with pam or use some butter)
- Take out a sheet of wax paper. Should be around a foot long.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 3: Assembly
~Do this for every single buiscuit until you have none left and the wax paper is filled with mini pieces of biscuits
- Pour both the cinnamon and sugar into the plastic Ziploc bag
~Be sure to shake and mix the Ziploc bag thoroughly to properly mix the cinnamon and sugar together
- Sprinkle your choice of nuts into the bottom of the well greased (or buttered) bunt pan
- Gently add the sliced biscuits into the bag of cinnamon and sugar mixture.
~ With the sliced mini biscuits in the Ziploc bag shake the bag until each biscuit is well coated in the mixture
~ Repeat this process until all of your slice biscuits are coated
- After all of the slices are coated, put them into the greased bunt pan
~ Layer the pieces accordingly (refer to the last picture above)
Step 4: Making the Sauce
- Add brown sugar to melted butter until fully incorporated.
~ Stir occasionally
- Let the butter and brown sugar mixture cook slowly until the sides of the pan start to bubble.
- Let the brown sugar mixture cool down until thickened.
- Once the sauce is cooled down pour the sauce over the biscuit pieces that are in the bunt pan
~ Spread evenly with a near spatula
~ Sprinkle additional nuts over the sauce (optional)
Step 5: Bake
~ Place on middle rack for best baking position
- Set the timer for 40 minutes to let cook.
*Do not open the oven door when baking.This will cause the Monkey bread to "fall" and will not maintain a good risen shape
Step 6: Post Baking
- Carefully take out the Monkey Bread out of the oven and place onto the stove
- Once on the stove let the Monkey Bread cool off for roughly 10 minutes
~CAUTION: the monkey brains will be extremely hot
- After 10 minutes has past and the bunt pan has cooled off place your serving plate ontop of the bunt pan
- Carefully flip the entire bunt pan so that it is upside down sitting on top of your serving plate
- To get the Monkey Bread out of the plate gently tap on the top of the bunt pan so that it loosens up the Monkey Bread
- Once loose simply lift the bunt pan off of the Monkey Bread.
