I know you are sitting at your desk watching the clock. It is Thanksgiving week, and you just want to be home getting ready for the celebration. Well, this post will keep you busy for a minute, and you are going to love me and hate me for this one. But I am not sorry for sharing this amazingly quick and simple way to make gooey, sweet, delicious Monkey Bread. Your kids will love me for sure!
When the holiday season begins with the onset of Thanksgiving, it is a pretty good bet that you will find a package of King’s Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Rolls in my pantry. They always come in handy for little cocktail sandwiches using leftover ham or turkey when you get an invite to an impromptu gathering. But what do you do when you need an impromptu breakfast sweet roll? You use those King’s Hawaiian’s to make Monkey Bread, that is what!
Monkey Bread ala King’s Hawaiian
You should have everything you need in your fridge and pantry. So let’s get started.
1 Tblspn milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped candied pecans, regular pecans, or another nut of your choosing.
1-4 oz. stick butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
The very first thing you do is preheat the oven to 350° so that it’s hot enough when you are ready. Then spray your bundt pan with butter cooking spray. You can use an 8-inch round cake pan with a heatproof ramekin in the center of the pan if you do not have a bundt pan.
Top the bread mixture with your chopped nuts. Stir melted butter and brown sugar together and pour evenly over the mixture in the pan.
