Monkey Bread

One last holiday favorite before I retire for the night. My Mom first made monkey bread at Christmas when I was in high school and I remember everyone raved about it at our annual Christmas Eve party. I’ve used this recipe several times since then and it’s always a predictable hit!

My daughter doesn’t enjoy raisins so I only put mine on the top instead of throughout the bread so she can pick them off. But feel free to mix them right in!

Here’s what you need

2 cans of prepared biscuit dough

1/2c granulated sugar

2 Tbsp cinnamon

1 c. Light brown sugar

1/2 stick butter

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup raisins

In a large bowl cut the biscuits into bite size pieces. Add granulated sugar and cinnamin. Coat the biscuits add raisins and set it aside. In a medium sauce pan melt the butter and brown sugar into a loose caramel. In a bundt pan add a small amount of raisins, and caramel sauce layer in biscuits and top with more caramel. Bake 350F for 20-30min. Turn out onto a serving plate. Pieces can be brokwn off by hand or you can cut and serve like a cake. Enjoy!
