When May hits, we are in crazy, busy season. We have baseball. We have end of school celebrations. We have parties. Lots of parties. It’s also the beginning of Friday night neighborhood deck nights and family brunches. Which means I have to have a bunch of recipes and ideas at my disposal.
One of my go-to recipes, whether it be for brunch or just because, is Monkey Bread. It’s easy to make. Everyone loves it. And did I mention it’s easy?
You will need:
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers refrigerated biscuits
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 12-cup fluted tube pan with shortening or cooking spray. In large -storage plastic food bag, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon. Separate dough into 16 biscuits; cut each into quarters.
Shake in bag to coat.
Arrange in pan.
In small bowl, mix brown sugar and butter; pour over biscuit pieces.
Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Turn upside down onto serving plate; pull apart to serve. Serve warm.
If you are serving your Monkey Bread at brunch, you’re gonna need a good coffee to pair with it! Last month, I shared with you my partnership with Lavazza Coffee. I have been trying out their different blends and deciding which one I loved most. I am normally a mild blend girl. What can I say I love my breakfast blends, but I am branching out and trying more.
I recently tried the Santa Marta blend. It’s a medium roast with 100% Arabica coffee making it flavorful and balanced with subtle hints of pralines. I knew with the hint of pralines it would make a great pairing for my Monkey Bread! The Santa Marta blend is ideal for both coffee makers and French press (which I still need to try my hand at!).
