I’ve had a major craving for pull-apart monkey bread lately. Don’t even know why as I’ve never made it before, only tasted the delectableness once at Lisa’s house years and years ago. But for some reason, I HAD to have it this week.
The girls were happy to help.
I researched a bunch of recipes on the web and then kind of settled on these ingredients. They had me at butterscotch pudding:
Basically, we chopped each biscuit into quarters. (Those are greasy little suckers, aren’t they? I couldn’t even think about picking up the camera at this point.) Then dipped each piece into melted butter and shook it around in the tupperware, which was holding all the dry ingredients. Tossed the coated pieces in our bundt pan, and voila.
Oh yeah, and, as usual, there was a little tasting going on. (No time to brush hair, it was just scrape it back in a pony to keep it out of the batter.)
This stuff ROCKED. We meant to sit down at the table and have a civilized breakfast, but couldn’t resist grabbing a taste as soon as it was on the plate. And then, well, it was all over. We hunched around the kitchen island and devoured a large chunk of it right on the spot. The girls’ eyes were huge, and they thought it was incredible tasting (so did TubaDad and I). Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm.
- 1 (3.5 oz) package cook and serve butterscotch pudding mix
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup really finely chopped pecans (could substitute walnuts, unless you live with a Texas boy)
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 4 (7.5 oz) cans refrigerated biscuits
Preheat your oven to 350. In a large tupperware container, combine pudding mix, sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Pour the butter into a small bowl. Cut the each biscuit into four pieces. Dip several pieces into the butter, then place in tupperware; cover and shake. Put coated pieces in a greased bundt pan. Continue piling in all of your coated biscuit pieces. Sprinkle a bit of the remaining coating on top after all your pieces are in the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool in pan for 30 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate.
