Monkey Bread

4 tubes refrigerator biscuits
1-1/3 cups sugar, divided
2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
1 stick margarine or butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together 2/3 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Cut each biscuit into 3 pieces. Place biscuit pieces in the cinnamon sugar mixture to lightly coat. Place coated biscuit pieces into a greased 12-inch bundt pan.

In a small saucepan, stir together the remaining sugar, margarine, cinnamon, and vanilla. Heat on the stove until it reaches a boil. Pour over the biscuit pieces and bake for 40 minutes. When done, turn the monkey bread onto a plate and serve warm.


The preparation steps for this recipe are easy enough for children. Older children can cut the biscuits while the younger ones coat the pieces in cinnamon sugar and place them in the pan. An adult can use the stove to make the topping that will be poured over the top of the biscuits before baking.
