I love making this monkey bread recipe with the kids! This was first published in July of 2011 and since then, we have made it quite a few times!
I know many people know and love Monkey Bread. I, however, did not know about this (or had forgotten) until I was looking for a special Christmas recipe a couple of years ago. This recipe is right up my alley…simple, sugary, and YUMMY! When we worked at the children’s home, this recipe was a HUGE hit.
Anyway, so I started making monkey bread and our oldest son LOOOOOVED it. And it was a good go-to “I don’t feel like eating anything” food during my pregnancy with our second son, as well.
I only used 2 cans of biscuits since my mom doesn’t care for Monkey Bread and I’m still trying to watch the carbs…sort of…..I used one loaf pan, but it would NOT have held more than 2 cans of biscuits. I don’t have the recommended pan, so I like to use loaf pans with 2 cans per pan.
Now, without further delay…the recipe, with a few sweet pictures of our then 2 year old helping Mommy cook!
