The most requested recipe...

I decided to post my Monkey Bread recipe again since it's been much requested lately.

It started with a basic recipe for the bread and I've evolved it into a cinnamon explosion! lol

Monkey Bread

3-4 cans of refrigerated cinnamon rolls 
(I prefer the store brands that are rolled instead of the "buns")
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
cooking spray

Grease a bunt pan well. Preheat your over to 350 degrees. Then open all of the cinnamon rolls and cut each roll  into about 8 pieces (depends how big you want the bites). Mix the cinnamon and granulated sugar and roll the pieces in it. They don't have to be balls; they bake up all squeezed together anyway.

Stack all of the pieces into the bunt pan. Cut the butter into pieces and add the brown sugar.  Microwave this for approximately 1 minute. All the sugar should be melted into the butter... whisk it up to a creamy, smooth caramel sauce. You may need to mix then zap for another 15 secs. Mix until completely combined then slowly pour over the goodness inside the pan, being sure to cover as much as you can.

Place in the oven for 45 mins. The top looks like it gets dried out, but once you flip it onto a plate all the sugars and syrups run down and coat it. It's fabulous... and very hot initially! You may want to use a fork to take pieces off, at least initially. Enjoy!!!


To make it even MORE cinnamon-ny and ooey-gooey. Melt a stick of butter and roll the pieces of cinnamon roll into that BEFORE rolling them into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Crazy, I know, but totally, insanely YUMMY!!!!


You can make an icing for this by adding a couple of drops of vanilla or milk to a half to a cup of confectioners sugar!
