This is a must on Christmas morning. My family has come to love this and it's now a tradition for us to have monkey bread every Christmas. Very easy to make and will make your whole house smell like heaven. If you've never had it before, you must give it a try. Also, contrary to what my son thinks, it's not made w/monkeys LOL, or does it have bananas in it. 4 year olds are funny huh? lol
4 cans (7.5 oz cans) biscuits
1 stick of butter(Jeannine that is 1/2C for my Aussie friend haha)
2C brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 C cream or half and half
1/2 C chopped pecans
In a small pot, combine butter,brown sugar,ground cinnamon,cream and pecans and bring to boil. In a greased bundt pan, layer biscuits(but in half then rolled into balls) and sauce, ending w/sauce. I use 2 cans on bottom, add half the sauce, then add the other 2 cans then add rest of sauce. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Invert onto serving plate and serve warm.
It's called Monkey Bread bc you can use your fingers to pull the bread apart. :) Try explaining this to a 4 yr old lol.
