I was going to post a recipe, but cartwhellmac beat me to it, and hers is identical to what I was taught to make. The only difference is that I use a baking bowl that is shaped roughly like a bullet, with the blunt end at the bottom and a tin metal tube that rises from the center to distribute the heat to the middle of whatever is being baked. It was originally perchased by my wife to create a Barbie Doll cake, with the doll insterted to the waist in a cake that looked like the elegant hoop skirts of the 19th century. This makes a wonderful mound of monkey bread that everyone just tears a pice off of.

You can also roll the dough balls in butter, savory herbs and parmesan cheese.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Wow, look at all you guys who make your own bread dough! Up until now, I thought ALL monkey bread was made with refrigerator biscuits!

Here's the one I made last summer, when wild blueberries were in season.



2/3 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
4 pkg. refrigerator biscuits
1 1/4 stick oleo
1 1/4 c. blueberries
2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 c. blueberries

Thoroughly grease a 10-inch tube pan. Mix 2/3 cup sugar
and 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Cut biscuits in quarters. Roll
each piece in cinnamon mix. Arrange about 1/4 biscuits and 5
tablespoons blueberries. Repeat 3 more times with remaining
biscuits and remaining of 1 1/4 cups blueberries.
In saucepan, combine sugar, oleo, vanilla, 1 tablespoon
cinnamon and 1 cup blueberries. Bring to boil. Reduce heat;
cook, stirring frequently until sugar dissolves. Pour over
biscuits in pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 65 minutes. Turn out on

This isn't a true version, but one I've fixed for my family for years.
2 cans refrigerator biscuits
sugar and cinnamon (enough to dredge biscuits in)
butter - melted
pecans - chopped

pull biscuits apart into fourths - dip in melted butter - dredge in sugar cinnamon mixture. layer in bundt pan - after first layer put pecans over - do other layers until biscuits are finished. Bake at 375 until nice and brown (about 20 minutes or so).

Not Sweet, But So Good

kansasgirl posted this one about a year ago when I first joined DC. It's a winner! And where ARE you, kansasgirl, with more killer recipes????

Bacon Pull-Apart Bread - kansasgirl

12 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 c Parmesan cheese, fresh grated
1 small onion, chopped finely
3 cans buttermilk biscuits, each biscuit cut into quarters
1/2 cup butter, melted
Fresh pepper to taste
1 c Cheddar cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 10 in Bundt pan.
1.Combine bacon, Parmesan cheese, onion and fresh pepper; set aside.
2.Dip each biscuit piece into butter. Place 1/3 of biscuit pieces in the bottom of the Bundt, and then sprinkle half of bacon mixture over biscuits. Sprinkle with 1/2 the cheddar.
3.Repeat layering one more time and then end with a layer of biscuits; brush tops with butter.
4.Bake for 40 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on a wire rack and then invert onto a serving platter. Serve immediately.

oooooo! A SAVORY monkey bread! That's the next one I'm making for the girls when we have another grown-up pajama party!

Cara, are you familiar with the Pillsbury brand? They have a huge line of refrigerated pre-made doughs. Click on the link, and when you get there, click on the word "Products" to see some of the doughs available. They are REALLY good, thank heavens!
