Dutch Oven Recipe: Monkey Bread

Dutch oven: Monkey bread
Group: Richard
Rating: *** Good I would make this at home

  • 2 rolls of Pillsbury biscuits
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 stick butter, melted

  1. line the oven with foil and spray dutch oven with cooking spray.
  2. Chop biscuits into quarters. Mix sugar and cinnamon in plastic bag. Drop each quarter into bag and shake to coat well.
  3. Place the mixture in the dutch oven.
  4. Melt the butter and pour over biscuits.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Check around 30 minutes to see if the dough is done.

Outcome: I expected that I would have trouble starting the fire but I was able to do it with a single match. I had already put the Sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a bag together before I started so I didn't have much to do. I cut all the Pillsbury biscuits, put them in the mix and then put them in the dutch oven. I forgot to cut one of the biscuits and put it in so there was less than I expected but there was still more than enough. I had also forgotten to put the butter in before I started cooking but that didn't detract to much from the taste. School had ended and I was still cooking so I had to stop before they were done even though I had cooked for the required time. If I hadn't  put the tinfoil around the dutch oven so tightly I might have been able to finish cooking. When I was done they were a little under cooked but the few people who tried them said they were good. If I were to make this again I would make sure not to wrap the dutch oven too tightly in tinfoil and put the butter in before I put it on the fire.
