First things first, Kaydence was able to be taken off the ventilator today for awhile and managed to breathe on her own for several hours. Yay Kaydence!! Things are looking up. Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers. Keep 'em coming.
I think this news calls for a celebration. A monkey bread celebration. And not the ordinary monkey bread with the run of the mill cinnamon and sugar. Oh no, this is kicked up a few notches. This recipe makes even me, despiser of mornings, LEAP, out of bed! And the fact that it requires very little thought or preparation is also a plus considering I'm not coherent til about 8:00 a.m. and at least one cup of coffee. I wish I could take credit for creating this recipe but I have to give credit where credit is due. When my Dad got remarried, not only did I gain a fabulous stepmom but I also got her famous monkey bread recipe. It was in the prenup. Just kidding, but this is Evie's recipe and for that I will forever be grateful. Well, for that AND making sure my Dad doesn't leave the house in his 1985 red and yellow tiger striped Chiefs pajama pants ever again.
Alright enough talk, let's get to the action.
2 tubes Butter Tastin' Grands Biscuits (it's crucial to get the butter tastin' big ones)
1 pint heavy whipping cream (it's not the small school lunch milk size container, but not the quart, it's the one in the middle)
1 1/4 c. brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 pan. Tear each biscuit into 4 pieces and put in pan. Stir brown sugar and whipping cream together in mixing bowl and pour over the biscuits. Make sure all biscuits are coated. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until top is golden and biscuits in the middle are cooked through. When you remove from the oven you can either serve right from the pan OR line a cookie sheet with foil and flip the pan of monkey bread over on to the foil so all the gooey goodness is on top. A good morning is guaranteed.
And now you will love my stepmom Evie as much as we do. :)
