Cinnamon With Apple Pull-Apart Bread-Monkey Bread


If you love the sweet smell of cinnamon baked goods, do try baking this Cinnamon With Apple Pull-Apart Bread (or aka. Monkey Bread). I will admit that I have a real weakness for any cinnamon baked goodies and when the craving hit me over the recent holidays, the monkey got me into the kitchen to bake this bread! :-) Honestly, I am not sure where it got that nickname; but, this bread is really delicious. The bread is soft, gooey, sweet, and with the baked apple and cinnamon aromatic flavors, you will need to restrain yourself from going for the second or third portion! Anyway, please note that I opted to use store-bought chilled biscuit dough here, instead of making the dough from scratch. If you prefer to make the bread from scratch, then do check out My Kitchen Snippets blog for the recipe. Happy baking!


Cinnamon With Apple Pull-Apart Bread-Monkey Bread

Ingredients

2 Cans (340G X 2) Pillsbury Country Biscuits
½ Cup Granulated Sugar
2 to 2 ½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 Apple, peeled, cored and diced
1 Stick (1/2 cup) Unsalted Butter
¾ Cup Brown Sugar

Bundt pan, coated with butter

Method

Preheat the oven to 350˚F.

Mix together the granulated sugar and cinnamon; set aside.

Separate the dough and cut each into quarters. Toss the dough and apple with cinnamon sugar. Layer the dough in the pan, scatters some diced apple and continue to do so until all the dough and apple are used up.

In a small saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar. Then pour the mixture over the dough. Bake for about 30 or until golden brown in color. Cool on rack for about 10 minutes and then invert onto a serving plate. Serve warm.

Serves 6 to 8

  8. @Anonymous: The chilled dough is usually located at the dairy section. You can substitute with buttermilk biscuit dough or try making the dough from scratch?

  11. That looks irresistible! I believe the name for this came from the fact that you can pick it apart like a monkey. That's what my cooking teacher in summer school told me.

  14. You can use frozen dinner roll dough or make a pound of bread dough. We prefer that over biscuits. The only disadvantage is you need to have time to let it rise. When I make it for breakfast I put the frozen balls of dough in the pan along with the other ingredients. I cover & refrigerate overnight for 8 hours. It will rise & you can bake them fresh for breakfast.
