Pillsbury Monkey Bread Recipe
I will admit, I am not always a morning person. I enjoy getting to sleep in, take my time waking up in silence with a cup of coffee and just slowly waking up to greet the world.
But, we all know when you have kids, they don’t care if it is a Saturday, they will barge in and wake you up asking what is for breakfast.
I love having a quick and easy monkey bread recipe in my arsenal that I can pull out and whip up with minimal prep. You can even switch out the granulated sugar and cinnamon and mix brown sugar and cinnamon in stead.
Using the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls as the base means no time for waiting for bread dough to rise, and that is one thing I love for those tired mornings of making breakfast.
