this is the one thing we make and know everyone will enjoy
here is fresh out of the oven


I drizzled a little icing on it and here is what  I managed to get a photo of.


here is the recipe.   (you can do it in individual muffin cups too.)
Monkey Bread

Ingredients:

4 cans refrigerated biscuits  (the small round ones)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins (these are optional, it's great with or without them)
 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9-10 inch tube pan.

2. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a medium sized plastic bag. Cut the biscuits into halves or quarters and place six to eight biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Shake well.

3. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the greased pan. Continue layering until all the biscuit pieces are coated and in the pan. If you are using raisins, place them among the biscuit pieces as you are layering.

4. In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the layered biscuits.
  (I do more cause we like lots of goo)
5. Bake for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Pull apart and enjoy!

Icing:


Ingredients:    (or store bought works well)

1/2 pound cream cheese
1/2 pound butter
1 pound powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Directions:

1.Allow cream cheese and butter to get to room temperature.

2. Beat butter and cream cheese together in a large bowl with a mixer.

3. Slowly add in the pound of powdered sugar.

4. After all the powdered sugar is added mix for 12 minutes (do not mix less than that).

5. When almost done, add in the extract and lemon juice.

 Shocked o.m.g.  that looks absolutely fan-frinken-tabulous!!!!!!  Shocked
this could be made with a homemade bread or biscuit recipe, couldn't it?  We never have those refrigerated biscuits.  but I'm willing to bet it would be good with homemade bread to.  Are these biscuits you are using a baking powdr biscuit, or a yeast based biscuit?  cause I want me some monkey bread!!!!!!!!!

I just made monkey bread just the other day. I am originally from the states, but currently live in Iceland. We don't have canned biscuits here, so I had to use premade pizza dough, which worked lovely!! I used one of those silicone molds, and it was divine!

if you can make it with pizza dough, then it must be a yeast dough.  maybe I'll make one today.....
