No, it’s not healthy…but it’s oh so good….
This is similar to my step-mom Lulu’s recipe for Monkey Bread, but its a little less labor intensive. 🙂 I have no idea why its called monkey bread….there are no monkey’s or monkey parts in it, and it’ doesn’t resemble a monkey….it’s a mystery to me.
Anyway, All you need, is 2 tubes of refrigerated biscuits, 3 tbsp. melted butter, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1/3 cup packed brown sugar (light), 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. (You could also add chopped pecans or walnuts, but I don’t like nuts in my food, so I didn’t).
Preheat your oven to 375. Spray a bundt pan with non stick cooking spray. Mix the melted butter and syrup in a bowl. Then mix (in separate bowl) the brown sugar, cinnamon, (and nuts if you are using any). Drizzle half of the syrup/butter mixture into the pan. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture in the bottom of the pan. Lay the biscuits on the bottom of the pan, overlapping the edges (pretty close together to form a ring. Top with the rest of the syrup/butter mixture, and then the brown sugar mixture.
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. After you remove it from the oven, let it cool in the pan a couple of minutes so that the syrup and sugar start to harden a little. Then place your plate on top of the bundt pan and flip it. Enjoy!
