Monkey Biscuits Recipe

Publisher Photo
The dear friend who shared this recipe has since passed away, but I think of her every time I prepare this sweet bread. Maple syrup provides a saucy caramel flavor. I enjoy developing original recipes or altering others to suit my tastes.

"This bread was really good... next time I think I will use slivered almonds instead of walnut pieces when it calls for nuts!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2010

"I had a bad experience with this recipe, Went exactly as the recipe says, took out of oven when browned on top, Inverted onto a serving plater, and guess what , the bottom was not fully cooked, good thing I had it on a metal platter with parchment paper on it, so anyway put the bread back in oven 8 more min. checked, still not done, added another 6 min. then would you know it was done. Tasted great, but just don't understand why it was not done on bottom, when I did exactly as recipe called for . Did anyone else experience this type of situation ?"
