Eeep-eep! I’m a monkey!

It’s time for the latest Kashrut alerts.

The dairy designation was inadvertently omitted. An OU-D will be ink-jetted on the neck of the bottle. Future packaging will be revised.

On a completely different note, earlier I sent someone a recipe. And, as its a favorite of mine, I thought I’d share it with all of you. While not a fancy recipe (Or my usual paragraph style), its a tasty treat many friends like! Here’s my secret recipe:

Easy Monkey Bread

4 large tubes of biscuits
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cinnamon

Mix in a bowl 1/2 cup sugar & 1/4 cup cinnamon and set aside.

melt the butter in a sauce pan or double-boiler. Once melted, add the remaining sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon to the melted butter before bringing to a boil.

Cut each biscuit roll into quarters, and then roll in the cinnamon & sugar mixture you first made.

Taking a can of non-stick spray, spray down the insides of a bundt (or a tube pan, for the culinary un-inclined) pan.

Place 2 cans worth of the biscuit rolls on the bottom of the pan, and pour half of your syrup over it. Place in the other two rolls worth of biscuit rolls atop this layer, then cover with the remaining syrup.

Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Let rest for 15 minutes to cool slightly, then place a plate over the top of the pan.

Flip the pan and plate over, lift the pan, and serve this pull-apart treat.

As an added bonus, you can top the monkey bread with crushed pecans before serving, but many will be asking how you could make such a delicious, if messy, treat!
Shhh, now don’t tell! This will be OUR little secret! Now, some may ask about the biscuit tubes, and if they are kosher. Well, they are! Just look for the handy mark from our friends at OU, Star-K, or any other Kashrut organization, and you’ll be fine! Until next time, Shalom & Good Cooking!
