(Recipe originally posted September 11, 2019)
Growing up my grandma and mom always made cinnamon and sugar biscuits using canned biscuit dough. They dipped each biscuit in melted butter, then in a cinnamon & sugar mixture and stacked them vertically in a bread or bundt pan, depending on how many cans they used.
I helped make them many, many times, and over the years my boys have helped me make them.
This Gooey Caramel Monkey Bread is a version of that childhood favorite just taken up a notch or two (or three). Bite-sized, cinnamony, sugary biscuit pieces smothered in gooey caramel sauce.
Gooey, carmely and ridiculously good is the name of the game here my friends. I made a batch of my simple caramel sauce recipe (slightly altered) and poured it over the biscuits before baking. The end result was pretty phenomenal.
Your house will smell amazing while these are baking and will totally put you in the fall baking mood, if you’re not there already.
This monkey bread is great for breakfasts, brunches, dinners, holidays, or any time you’re in the mood for caramel deliciousness. It’s kind of like heaven on earth if you ask me.
- canned biscuits
- brown sugar
- heavy cream
- pinch of salt
CAN I MAKE MAKE THIS WITHOUT THE NUTS?
Yes! Of course you can, or you can switch it up and use another kind of nut if you’re not a fan of almonds. Not using nuts will not change the outcome of this recipe at all.
CAN I USE HOMEMADE DOUGH?
Absolutely! If you have a simple, favorite dough recipe go ahead and use that. Just roll it into balls or cut pieces and follow the recipe.
This yummy monkey bread is a total game-changer for breakfast, brunch or dinner! It’s also perfect for Christmas morning. . . just sayin’.Print
