Monkey Bread (Emilie’s sister’s recipe)
3 cans buttermilk biscuits (the non-flaky ones)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 sticks butter (1 cup)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Open up all three cans of biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters. Next, combine the white sugar with 2-3 teaspoons of cinnamon. 3 teaspoons of cinnamon gives it a fairly strong cinnamon flavor. If you’re not so hot on cinnamon, cut it back to 2 teaspoons. Dump these into a 1 gallon zip bag and shake to mix evenly. Drop all of the biscuit quarters into the cinnamon-sugar mix. Once all the biscuit quarters are in the bag, seal it and give it a vigorous shake. This will get all those pieces unstuck from one another and nicely coated with the cinnamon-sugar. Spread these nuggets out evenly in a bundt pan. At this point, you’re going to want to melt those two sticks of butter together with 1/2 cup of brown sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat. This can be light or dark brown sugar. Cook butter/sugar mixture, stirring for a few minutes until the two become one. Once the brown sugar butter has become one color, you can pour it over the biscuits. Bake for about 30-40 minutes until the crust is a deep brown on top. When it’s finished cooking, removed from the oven. If you have the willpower, allow it to cool for about 15-30 minutes before turning it over onto a plate.
