Oooey-Gooey Monkey Bread

I woke up early this morning. I had to text Kennedy's speech therapist and tell her we wouldn't make it to therapy since K is sick. Allergy sick I am certain, but sick none the less. Last night she said she was worried that she would be too shaky (both in movement and voice) and not be able to speak clearly enough for therapy. Breaks my heart. Life is hard.

But monkey bread is good and I didn't go back to bed after I was up early. I suggested it for breakfast. I didn't have any opposition. My friend, Marsha, has a recipe for Caramel Crescent Pull-Aparts that is just absolutely delicious! YUM! I mixed it with my trusty monkey bread recipe to produce the ooey-gooiest, tastiest monkey bread I've baked. Well, except for maybe the sticky bun pull-aparts with cream cheese. But this was easy, and good.

First, and I didn't measure, sprinkle (dump) brown sugar in a bundt cake pan, add a couple tablespoons of butter (thin little slabs), and some syrup. Stick it in the oven while it is preheating to 350 and let it melt, then stir it up.

Next cut up a can of biscuits, I used buttermilk flaky layers and cut them into sixths. Then have your little monkeys shake them in a bag of sugar (about a half cup) and cinnamon (a tablespoon or more) whilst singing "I'm No Kin to the Monkey."

(yes, there is an elephant on my counter. and a dolphin, too)

(look at those sad, sick eyes & that beautiful sunshine!)

Then you will bake it for 20-25 minutes. Take it out, flip it over and enjoy!
