-Just try to resist digging into this gooey monkey bread coated with cinnamon and oozing with caramel. It's a delicious breakfast or dessert recipe that's sure to vanish before your eyes. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease a 10-inch tube pan with either fluted or straight sides. To make a cinnamon sugar coating, add 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon to a cup of sugar in a medium bowl and stir them together. Set the bowl aside for now. For the dough, you'll need two 12-ounce cans of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits for a total of 20 biscuits. It's such a great timesaver and all the hard work is done for you. Use a pair of kitchen shears to cut each biscuit into quarters. Toss the biscuit pieces several at a time in a half cup of melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat each piece. Layer the biscuit pieces evenly in the pan, lightly pressing them in. Sprinkle the dough with any remaining cinnamon sugar mixture. And now for the gooey part, mix a third of a cup of caramel ice cream topping and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. Drizzle it over the biscuits. It's ready to go in the oven. Bake the monkey bread until it's golden brown and a toothpick inserted near the center of the biscuit pieces comes out clean. About 30 minutes. Let the bread stand for 10 minutes and then invert it on to a serving platter. Just beautiful. Try to resist digging into this gooey monkey bread coated with cinnamon and oozing with caramel. Be sure to serve the monkey bread warm and with napkins.
