Today is MONKEY BREAD Thursday.

I know that Monkey Bread is an old favorite. A mix between buttery biscuits and cinnamon buns. Perfect pairing with coffee, tea, and milk. Yummy - yum. Heck, I think it even makes a good breakfast! But today was the first time we made it at home. Skylar, who is a big fan of cooking, helped me make it. I didn't catch a pic of her rolling the dough (darn it!) but her and her brother were happy with the result. Here is the super-easy recipe that you can make with your own monkey helpers.


4 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 stick butter
1 can biscuits (I use Pillsbury Grands)
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Melt the first three ingredients and boil for 2 minutes. Split each biscuit in half and roll in the last two ingredients. Place side by side in a 9x9 pan. Pour boiled mixture over it. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Optional: Sprinkle biscuit layers with nuts, raisins, craisins or coconut shavings.

Going...going...gone!!! Deacon had the green bowl and Skylar had the blue bowl - that was her second helping!

  4. I just started to follow your blog because I heard about it from 30Days, and also checked out your shop and just have to say, Wow. You are very talented. Your etsy shop blew me away. What a creative twist on the headbands and clips. Keep up the great work!
