“… tomorrow morning. Banana. Nut. Monkey. Bread…. snooooore….”
That was me falling asleep. In case you weren’t sure. (My powers of written word are… questionable at best.)
Live and learn. That’s my motto.
Unless I’m having a prideful day… then I’m just plain upset when a recipe isn’t perfect the first time. I have been known to pout.
So if you’re going to give this a try stick with the recipe below, I’ve already added in a few tweaks that I think will enhance the final dish. Just go with me here.
Needed: 2 cans biscuits (the non-flaky kind), 1 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 2 sticks butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 ripe bananas and 2 cups nuts (I used chopped walnuts).
In a gallon size zip lock bag combine the sugar and cinnamon. Open your biscuit cans and cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Put all the biscuit pieces in the bag and shake it like a Polaroid picture. Hey yeah.
You want all the pieces to get fully coated by the cinnamon sugar.
Slice up the bananas. Layer the biscuit pieces, banana slices and nuts in a baking dish. I used a vintage Pyrex casserole dish, you could also use a bundt pan.
Melt the butter and brown sugar in a pan and pour over the top of the monkey bread “batter.” Cover the top with aluminum foil and bake at 350 F for 25 minutes. Then remove the foil from the stop and bake another 10-15 minutes, until the top looks golden and crunchy.
