Favorite Ingredients Friday (Bread Edition)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for a special Favorite Ingredients Friday Bread Edition! Considering that I love bread almost as much as I do chocolate, I don't know why I haven't done this theme sooner!  I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Before I share my recipe, I'd like to remind you that Tamy at 3 Sides of Crazy! is hosting a Bread Round-Up on October 15.  Feel free to join in by sharing the same recipe that you're sharing here today.  Go visit her blog for details and help her spread the word!

Now then, the recipe I'm sharing is something my mom taught me how to make when we were kids.  We LOVED this sweet bread!  Snuggle Bug loves it too.


3 (12 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9 or 10 inch tube pan.

2. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut biscuits into quarters. Shake 6 to 8 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along.

3. In a small saucepan, melt the margarine with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the biscuits.

4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Do not cut! The bread just pulls apart.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday Bread Edition.

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

Monkey bread is so yummy! Love the flavor and it's simple to make.

I love monkey bread, too! In fact, I don't think I've ever met a bread I didn't like.

One thing I love throwing in almost all breads (except sweet ones) is flax seed. It's good for you, it's cruncy, and it's fun. I don't always like sunflower seeds because they're too meaty, but flax seed is great, and it's super healthy!

I don't have time to post a recipe today, but that is definitely my favourite ingredient!

Thank you for the bread recipes. I was just thinking I needed to make some bread today.

Been making monkey bread for years. All my children loved it growing up and still do. Blessings from Costa Rica
