Today we had the pleasure of making Monkey Bread with Silas and his mom Miss Brooke. It was delicious, easy, fun, and we learned a little more about Silas too. Like did you know Silas has a monkey for a relative? His great-grandfather, Chester Hayes, was an entertainer in Hollywood. He trained monkeys for movies he had a monkey, Fuzzy.
2 cans (1 lb. each) large biscuits - the kind with Box Tops, of course!**
1 cup sugar
3 tsp. cinnamon
2 sticks butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 gallon Ziploc bag
A monkey or two to help. Use a kid if you don't have a monkey!
What you do:
Heat the oven to 325. Crack open the biscuits and cut in quarters. Mix cinnamon and sugar in the Ziploc bag. Add the dough pieces and seal. Shake the bag until everything is covered. Put the pieces in the Budnt pan and set aside. Melt the butter and brown sugar and pour over the biscuit pieces until evenly coated. Bake for 30-40 minutes and let cool for 15. Flip the pan, pull apart, and enjoy like a monkey!
