Monkey Bread

Here's what you will need to make it:

  • 1 can pre-made biscuit dough

  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • chopped pecans

  • microwave safe bowl

  • wax paper

  • mixing bowl

  • knife

  • bundt pan

  • oven mitts

  • wooden spoon

Here's what you have to do:

1. There's a lot of butter and sugar in Monkey Bread, which makes it a yummy treat for a special occasion or as a dessert.

2. Be sure to wash your hands and check with a grown-up before you begin. You'll be using an oven for this recipe.

3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

4. Twist the can to open the biscuit dough and pull apart the biscuits into 4 pieces.

5. Roll each piece into a little ball.

6. Put 1/4 cup of butter into a microwave safe bowl. Cover it loosely with wax paper and melt the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds. Use oven mitts to take the butter out of the microwave.

7. Mix 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of sugar together in a mixing bowl.

8. Take the dough balls and dunk them into the melted butter and then dunk them into the cinnamon and sugar.

9. Put the dough balls into a bundt pan. Add some chopped nuts like pecans, if you like nuts.

10. Use oven mitts to put the bundt pan into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes.

11. Take the bundt pan out of the oven using oven mitts. Let your bread cool before you monkey with it.
