Well I have made monkey bread time and time again for different occasions and it always seems to be a huge hit. Well when I knew I was going to be at a sleepover this past weekend I decided I would get up and make breakfast for everyone. This time however I wanted to do a spin on Monkey bread and decided to make Gorilla Bread.
Gorilla Bread?!?! What is that? Well let me tell you. It's basically monkey bread but with an added bonus of cream cheese, yes I said cream cheese, the ever so decadent food that makes something that much more delicious.
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 8-ounce package cream cheese
2 12-ounce cans refrigerated biscuits (10 count) ( I use junior Grands!)
Pre-heat that oven to 350 degrees.
Take the white sugar and the cinnamon and mix them together in a bowl and set aside.
In a saucepan melt the butter and mix in the brown sugar over low heat and then set aside.
Take your block of cream cheese and open it up. Split it into 20 cubes.
Take your Bundt pan and spray it with Pam or use some Crisco to coat it so that it doesn't stick when it's done cooking.
Open up your biscuits and take one at a time. Press the biscuit out to be flat.
Take a couple pinches of the cinnamon sugar mixture and cover the whole top of the biscuit.
Place 1 cream cheese cube in the middle of the biscuit.
Fold the biscuit around to cover the cream cheese completely.
Continue to do this with the first can of biscuits and layer them along the bottom of the bundt pan.
Then take the cinnamon sugar mixture and cover the top of the layer of biscuits.
Take half of the brown sugar butter mixture and pour it all over as well.
Then repeat the process with the second can of biscuits.
Place it in the oven and let it cook 30 minutes and allow the smells to just completely fill the house.
Take it immediately and flip it over onto a plate, and let cool a little.
Or if you're friends are like my friends a piece will go missing immediately.
There you have it, such a simple breakfast food that is sure to please everyone.
