This weekend I made the most amazing breakfast with my daughter. This pull-apart caramel monkey bread was caramelly goodness. The kind where you shouldn’t be left unsupervised. The bonus was the princess of the house made it with me. Very kid friendly for helping and for eating!
Caramel Pull-Apart Monkey Bread
Are you drooling now? So, this bread is the easiest thing to make. The hard part, waiting for them to bake. Start by grabbing two cans of the large biscuits. Then cut each piece of biscuit dough into quarters.
A kid can event do it! So, while my little helper was cutting biscuits, I started on the caramel sauce by melting one stick of butter in a small saucepan and adding 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
I am becoming obsessed with salted caramels, so of course, I tossed a little sea salt into the mixture.
By this time, the biscuits were all cut into quarters. We grabbed a gallon size Ziploc bag and poured 1 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon into the bag.
We then put about half of the cut biscuits into the sugar and cinnamon, sealed the bag and shook it all up.
While she was shaking, I greased a bundt pan and poured 1/3 of the caramel sauce I had made into the bottom of the pan.
We then transferred the biscuits from the cinnamon and sugar to the pan. We sprinkled a little of the sugar mixture over top of the biscuits and poured half of the remaining caramel sauce over the biscuits.
Then repeat with the remaining biscuits and caramel sauce.
You are ready for the oven now. Bake the monkey bread at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.
Take it out of the oven and let it set for 2-3 minutes before flipping onto a serving platter.
Leftovers even reheated quite nicely in the microwave.
- 2 cans of refrigerator large biscuits, like Grands
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 stick of butter
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon water
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Cut biscuits into quarters and set aside. Pour sugar and cinnamon into a large Ziploc bag and set aside with cut biscuits.
- In a small pan, melt butter, sugar, water, and salt together. When mixture begins to boil, remove from heat and pour ⅓ of sauce in the bottom of a greased bundt pan.
- Place half of the cut biscuits in the bag of sugar and cinnamon. Shake to cover the biscuits and then put the biscuits evenly over the sauce in the bundt pan.
- Pour half of the remaining sauce over the biscuits. Shake the remaining biscuits in the sugar and cinnamon and place over the second layer of sauce. Finish by pouring the remaining sauce over top of the biscuits.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Let stand for 3 minutes before flipping onto a plate.
