Monkeying Around continued…
I really like my new Fluted Tube Pan (Bundt pan). I have big plans for many cakes and jellos and such as that.
I’m real pleased with the monkey bread. We’re amazed at how much it taste like a regular cinnamon roll. All it needed was a powdered sugar drizzle and it would have been perfect. I was going to make some, but thought perhaps we didn’t really need it.
I sent the leftover monkey bread to work with my husband this morning. I figure that was a wise move to help me avoid temptation.
Here’s my adjusted version of the monkey bread recipe:
Half Recipe for Monkey Bread
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup melted margarine
2 cans of biscuits
Preheat oven to 350°
Grease a Tube Pan (Bundt pan) with baking spray
Mix white sugar and cinnamon together in a large bowl that has a tight fitting lid.
Cut biscuits into 4 pieces each.
Put biscuit pieces in the bowl of sugar/cinnamon mix.
Put the lid on the bowl.
Shake the bowl until all the biscuit pieces are coated thoroughly.
Place the sugar/cinnamon coated biscuits pieces in the Tube Pan (Bundt pan)
Mix brown sugar and melted margarine together and pour over the biscuit pieces.
Bake 35 to 45 minutes or longer until done.
Remove pan from oven and let it set for 5 minutes.
Carefully, remove bread from the Tube Pan (Bundt pan) by turning the pan over on a flat plate or pan.
You may have to shake the pan to loosen the bread.
Remove pan from fresh baked monkey bread.
Allow monkey bread to cool.
Serve warm or room temp, we think it’s good either way.
To add a bit more temptation you could add a powdered sugar drizzle on the top of the bread. Drizzle is fairly simple to make. All you’re doing is liquifying powdered sugar.
Here’s my basic recipe.
Powdered Sugar Drizzle
Put 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a bowl and add a teaspoon of milk (or water or juice) and stir well
keep adding milk (or water or juice) a few drops at a time until the powdered sugar reaches the consistency you want.
Add more powdered sugar if you get it too thin.
Wishing you all a Sweet & Happy Valentines week!
PC Issues Update…
I’m amazed at how well the photo looks on my post yesterday. I’ve decided to keep it as is. You should see it on our desktop pc monitor, it looks awful. We really need a new monitor or a whole new desktop pc. lol
I’m happy to report that my new laptop battery is fully charged. I’m not sure how long it’ll run. It read on the little battery-window that it has a bit over 3 hours charge on it when I started just before 6 am. I’m going to keep my laptop unplugged and see how long it’ll last.
My laptop’s initial issue still reared it’s ugly head, but I turned off all my add-ons except the absolute necessary ones and that seems to have resolved the locking up slow sluggish issues for now.
I’ll be around to visit you all today. It’ll be good to get to blog for awhile again. PC issues are so disheartening and make me sad. But now, hopefully, I’ll be blogging happy again…
