Monkey Biscuits Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tubes (7-1/2 ounces each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

Directions

  • 1. Cut each biscuit into quarters. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Dip biscuits in butter, then roll in sugar mixture. Layer half the biscuits in a 10-in. fluted pan; sprinkle with half the nuts. Repeat layers. Pour syrup over top.
  • 2. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert onto a serving platter. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 1 loaf.
