Homemade Bread Day
I don't make yeast breads; just quick breads. One of the most fun is monkey bread. You can make it savory or sweet. Each starts with 2 cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, each biscuit cut in halves or quarters. Roll in 3/4 cup melted butter. Then in 1/2 cup sugar & cinnamon mix for sweet version or add herbs to butter for a savory version. Each of these can be embellished with chopped nuts or grated cheeses, etc. Spray a 12-cup fluted tube pan and arrange biscuit pieces in pan. Bake at 350°F for 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown. Cool a bit and then invert onto a serving plate; pull apart to serve.
