I remember making Monkey Bread in junior high school and I thought this would be a great recipe to make with my young children (2,4,& 6 yrs old). This was a great kid participation recipe. My oldest son said, "This is the best bread I've tasted in my whole life!" I held myself back from revealing to him that it was so good because of the tons of sugar and butter. :) I used three jumbo cans of buttermilk biscuits. This was a little too much for the bundt pan. They rose up higher than the pan and some of the sugary mixture dripped in my oven. I used real butter and left out the nuts. I started off putting everything in a big plastic bag, but the bag broke from the weight. I transferred the contents to a huge bowl and mixed the pieces together with my hands. I did not grease my non-stick bundt pan thinking I wouldn't have a problem getting it out. The bottom third of the bread did not come out on its own. It was a good thing the appearance of the finished product didn't matter. I would highly recommend this recipe.
This is fast, easy and a real hit with my DGSs which is a major plus in this house as they are really picky. Wanted to take a photo but can't find where I put my camera - Grrrrrr, hate it when I do that. Oh well, the taste is to die for and it didn't come out as pretty as the photos you already have. Thanks so much for posting.
There are lots of monkey breads recipes out there--some are identical, some have slight variations. We just made this recipe for Christmas breakfast (we make monkey bread every year), and we all agreed that THIS monkey bread was the best ever!
