Monkey Bread is one of those camping foods that starts with a tube of Pillsbury dough. So I use the term "recipe" loosely. Still, it's a classic and the kids love it, and so do I! It's delicious!
Why is Monkey Bread called Monkey Bread? Many of us campers think it's because the kids rip the "loaf" apart as if they were little monkeys. Hard to think of any other reason, isn't it? And only the Boy Scouts know for sure.
Have fun, and remember the butter!
1 tube of refrigerated biscuit dough
½ c. of brown sugar
1 T. of cinnamon
1 large Ziploc bag
1. Grease a skillet or Dutch Oven with butter.
2. Let the kids mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a plastic bag.
3. Have the kids pull biscuits off the roll and shake each biscuit in the bag of cinnamon sugar.
4. Place the biscuits in the skillet or Dutch Oven.
5. Dot each biscuit with butter.
6. Cover and cook the bread over medium heat for 20-30 minutes. If you cook this in a Dutch Oven, pile hot coals on top with your camp shovel.
