Need a quick, easy, yummy breakfast? How about some fresh, hot monkey bread? It’s easy to put together the night before, so it’s ready to pop in the oven for a delicious weekday breakfast.


4 cans buttermilk canned refrigerated biscuits
1 3/4 c. granulated sugar
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 c.) butter
1 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
1 c chopped pecans (optional, but YUM!)

Quarter biscuits and shake them (8 at a time) in a bag with 3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Put biscuits in well greased angel food cake or bundt cake pan. Bring remaining 1 cup sugar and butter to a boil, and pour over biscuit pieces. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes. Remove from pan immediately, serve when cool (if you can wait that long!). Monkey Bread is served by pulling apart to eat.

  1. Your monkey bread looks VERY tasty!! It’s funny because I made some just the other day. LOL

    Praying about the family issue.

  2. Hi Kris,
    I’m praying with you about the family issues. Criticism and opposition hurt anyway, but it hurts the most when it comes from family members. I”m keeping you and your family in my prayers~and, I”m thinking seriously about making some monkey bread right now! 🙂

  3. Oh yum! I wanted to make that when you posted about it before, but I never did it. The picture motivates me to give it another go! LOL

  4. The bread does look good. Did the “monkeys” like it? just kidding I was referring to the kids. I think this new situation will take some time to figure out where you fit in in your moms new life. Even the most ideal situations take time to get use to and work out. I think you just want to know that you are still important to your family and mom. with the new family being drinkers it would make anyone uncomfortable that doesn’t drink. Maybe you could have them over to your house and say we’ll have fun but it’s alcohol free :0) either way I pray you remember God loves you and your husband and kids love you and you fit perfectly with them

  5. Kris, I will be praying for your family situation. I am in a similar situation.
    Thanks for sharing the monkey bread recipe, it looks yummy! I havent had monkey bread since I was a kid! Gotta give it a try!

  6. I like to turn cream of potato soup into cheezy soup also–my family loves it when I add some cooked mixed vegies as well!
