Monkey Bread - Favorite of 4th graders!


My daughter's FAVE baked treat...and voted #1 in her 4th grade class, too!

MONKEY BREAD

2 loaves frozen bread dough, semi-thawed
Cinnamon & Sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 stick butter
3/4 c. vanilla ice cream

walnut or pecan pieces, if desired

Cut 1 loaf bread into large bite-size pieces (with pizza cutter)and put into a greased round cake pan. Repeat with 2nd loaf of bread and place into another round cake pan. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and nuts. Bring brown sugar, white sugar, butter and ice cream to a boil. Pour 1/2 of mixture over each pan of cut up bread. Let rise 30 minutes to 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes. (put a sheet underneath to catch drips!)

This can also be made in a bundt or angel food pan.
