What is monkey bread?

Monkey bread is a sweet, sticky pastry often served for breakfast or a sweet snack.

It is made of pieces of soft baked dough sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.

In some places, it’s called pull apart bread or bubble bread.

How to Make the Bread

To make the bread, add 1/4 cup of the sugar and the nutmeg to a small bowl.

Then whisk them to combine evenly and set aside.

After that, take the biscuits out of the can and separate them.

Use a pair of kitchen shears to cut each one into 4-6 pieces.

Then put the cut pieces in a large zip locking bag or a large lidded container.

Pour the sugar mixture over biscuit pieces.

Then seal the bag or container and shake well to evenly coat them and transfer the sugared biscuits to a greased 6 cup Bundt pan.

Now, mix melted butter and the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and pour it evenly all over the biscuits in pan.

Then bake at 350 degrees for 28 minutes, or until golden brown.

Once the bread is golden, remove it from the oven and let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes.

Then tip the Bundt pan upside down onto a serving plate.

Give it a pat or two if needed to release the bread.

How to Make the Eggnog Glaze

To make the eggnog glaze, just stir together all the ingredients until evenly combined.

If you like your glaze thinner, add more eggnog.

Finish the bread by drizzling the eggnog glaze over the monkey bread.

Storing

If you store it wrapped in plastic on the counter, it should keep for a day or so.

When you store it covered in the fridge it will last for up to a week.

You can tightly wrap it and freeze it for up to a couple months.

Then thaw it at room temperature before reheating and serving.

If you plan to freeze it, make the glaze when you thaw and reheat the bread, not before.
