Zoe’s Monkey Bread


In Taming Thad, Zoe likes to bake even though she is blind. One of her favorites things to make is monkey bread. I’ll let her tell you about it.

Zoe: Thanks Elizabeth. It’s really simple and Thad and his whole family fight over it every time I make it. Here’s the recipe:

Zoe’s Monkey Bread:

2 cans of refrigerated biscuits (remove from package and quarter)

Roll the biscuits in the following sugar mixture to coat both sides:

1/2 c sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground ginger

In a small pan on the stove, melt 1 c brown sugar (packed) and 3/4 c butter

Layer biscuits in a Bundt pan or a greased baking dish, sprinkling in 1 handful of chopped walnuts and 1 handful of raisins

Pour the brown sugar mixture over the top evenly

Bake in a 325 oven covered with foil for 25 minutes, then remove foil and continue baking until the biscuits are golden brown and done in the center (about 45 minutes total or so)

Let it cool for 10 minutes before flipping it over to remove from pan

This is a delicious treat that everyone will enjoy – Zoe
