HOW TO MAKE MONKEY BREAD

  1. To start, preheat oven to 350 degrees and  grease a 12 cup bundt pan with butter or cooking spray.
  2.  Open the tubes of biscuits and separate them. Set these aside.
  3. Measure the sugar and cinnamon into a gallon sized plastic bag and blend.  Working in batches of 4, drop the biscuits into the bag and shake to coat each biscuit with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Place the biscuits standing on their sides and overlapping in the bundt pan. Repeat with the remaining biscuits.

6. Rather cutting the biscuits into small pieces like the traditional recipes, this recipe leaves them whole so they create pull-apart bread slices after baking.

8. Melt the butter in a medium bowl. Once completely melted, add the brown sugar and stir until the brown sugar is incorporated into the butter.

9. Pour over the biscuits so that all of the biscuits are coated. The extra mixture will soak into the biscuits as the monkey bread bakes.

WHY IS IT CALLED MONKEY BREAD?

Monkey Bread is thought to originate from California in the 1940’s. The term “Monkey Bread” refers to a loaf or cake made from yeast dough dipped into butter. It’s called this funny name because it’s considered finger food and you eat it by picking it apart, like a monkey would.

HOW TO STORE CINNAMON WALNUT MONKEY BREAD

If you have leftover’s (we never do!) this is the best way to store it.

  • Monkey Bread should be stored in a plastic bag or covered container, at room temperature. The bag or container will keep it soft and minimize moisture loss. Also Keep it out of direct sunlight.
  • You can also easily freeze it as long as it is baked. Cut it into pieces and tightly wrap the pieces in plastic and store up to 1 month. Monkey Bread dough cannot be frozen, freezing will render the yeast inactive.
  • Avoid putting it in the refrigerator. It will harden as the starch crystallizes at cold temperatures.
