Home Cooking - Monkey Bread

Sunday after Christmas we had our extended family breakfast at my sister-in-law's home, she cooked for 11 adults and kids and I confess we did not bring one thing to eat (bad).  She made two batches of Monkey Bread, and during the meal mentioned that they now sell Monkey Bread "kits" at certain retailers for around $20.  Which is interesting, because all you really need is a bundt pan, and Tom Thumb sells those for about $12 if you don't already have one. 

So to save you anywhere from $20 to $8, here's the recipe you can make in less than 10 minutes at home.

1 can refrigerated Country Biscuits (large can of the large biscuits)
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix sugar and cinnamon in bowl.  Open biscuit can and slice each biscuit into 6 wedges.  Roll each wedge into a ball, roll in melted butter and then in sugar mixure.  Place in bottom of ungreased bundt pan, layer by layer.  When finished sprinkle remaining sugar around top and pour remaining butter over sugar.  Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.  Invert immediately on plate, let set 1 - 2 minutes before removing bundt pan.

10 out of 11 monkeys loved this recipe.
