Happy New Year's Eve, Eve and Monkey Bread

Monkey Bread recipe from Sunday's post

4 cans (10 to a can) biscuits.  I used grocery store brand butter me not (flakes of butter in biscuits)
1 tablespoon of cinnamon*
2 teaspoons of ground cloves*
1 teaspoon of nutmeg*
3/4 cup brown sugar*
(optional: raisins and pecans  to taste but I've never added them)

Preheat oven to 325, bake for 45 minutes

Supplies needed:
You will need either a bundt pan (fluted sides) or a pound cake pan.  
Large zip lock bag

Sauce ingredients
1 to 1 1/4 stick butter (1 is plenty)
1 cup brown sugar

spray pan with PAM
Mix all of the spices*  then pour into a large zip lock bag.
Quarter biscuits, add to zip lock bag one can at a time, shake well, take them out and spread around pan evenly.  Repeat until all 4 cans are in the pan.

After all the biscuits are in the pan, prepare sauce as follows:

In a small sauce pan, cut up the stick of butter add brown sugar.  Simmer on low until melted. pour over biscuits  Bake at 325 for 45 minutes


Over the years I have learned I can prepare the biscuit and spice mix the night before.
Cover tightly with foil store in fridge.  The next day all you have to do is prepare the sauce.

Years ago we were told the name came from the fact that it is served by just pulling off pieces like a Monkey would do.  But it is too hot and too messy we serve with a large spoon.

    Gracious, that sounds amazing... am thinking, though, that 'biscuits' are not what I call as that (which are sweet and crunch, like digestives, for example) - yours are more like 'scones'??? Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  11. Our MOM just loves Monkey Bread.... anythingy with Cinnamon on it... Trips her trigger...

  12. Hey Madi!
    Wow, have I mentioned that I love your new header?!? OMD this sounds delish. Frankie's right...we all love cinnamon around here.

  13. My assistant is off work this week and is going to try to make monkey bread ...though her baking skills aren't the best so I'm not getting my hopes up just yet.

    Hope you and your family have a healthy, happy, and fun new year!

  14. Madi, you look so serene and peaceful next to those flameless candles!
    Molly and Kathy

  15. Bawhahahhahahaaa, yes, my mom is prone to kitchen mishaps AND burning baked goods!

  16. We can already smell that baking up in the oven, yum!

  17. It sounds delicious but my mum is not sure about the biscuits. We call cookies biscuits but I think your biscuits are more like small scones? Also how much is 1 1/2 sticks of butter? We buy it in half pound bars.

  18. Hi Mady~!!! (And Mom) Been AGES since we stopped by...wishing you all a Happy New Year~!!!

  19. Mmmmm Monkey bread! Maybe Mom will have to make this for my dad's house for tomorrow morning's breakfast!

  20. If the Staff can work out the measurements I can see monkey bread in her future!! MOL xx

  21. If we waited for mom to cook us goodies we would starve
