Monkey Bread Ring AND Dinner Scones from Angel Biscuit Dough

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Homemade Crescent Roll dough, make your own homemade Monkey Bread.
Small Batch, Money Bread using Angel Biscuit Dough.

Having Angel Biscuit Dough ready to go is very convenient. The bowl sits quietly in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. Very convenient!

For a quick meal last week, we had Easter Monday Ham Bone Soup and dinner scones.

I usually make scones because I am a lazy biscuit baker. The rolling and cutting and re-rolling of the dough, phooey. I prefer to pat the dough out, cut into the number of scones I need/want and bake. Done and done.

To make scones, preheat oven to 425.

Angel Biscuit Dough, makes enough for four recipes.
Remove dough from the refrigerator, score the dough into 4 parts.

Note:  Each section of Angel Biscuit Dough is about the same as one tube of dairy case biscuits. Convenient for all those biscuit recipes you want to make, for a homemade version use, Angel Biscuit Dough.

Angel Biscuit Dough, made into scones, ready to bake.
Using one part, knead dough 3 - 5 times on a "floured" surface, I like to use oat bran to keep the dough from sticking, plus it does not leave a floury finish.

Pat into a circle approximately 1/2 inch thick.

Cut into the desired number of scones, place the circle of dough in a prepared baking pan.
Bake 20 - 25 minutes or until done in your oven.

And now, are you ready to make a Monkey Bread Ring?

Monkey Bread Ring
350-degree oven

1 portion of Angel Biscuit Dough - use the link above for the recipe.

1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg

1/4 c melted butter

1/4 c real maple syrup
1/4 c broken pecan pieces
oat bran to prevent dough from sticking to the work surface.

Combine brown sugar with cinnamon and nutmeg, set aside.
Using one portion of the Angel Biscuit dough, remove and knead 3-5 times on a surface dusted with oat bran.
Flatten to a rectangle. and cut into 24 pieces.

Homemade Monkey Bread, uses homemade stored dough.
Angel Biscuit Dough, ready to be dipped in butter and cinnamon sugar!

Roll each portion of dough into a ball, coat in melted butter, roll in brown sugar mixture and arrange in baking pan.

 It is safe to use a jelly jar for the center support, just remember it will get very hot in the oven.

When all dough has been used, scatter pecans over top of dough balls, pour maple syrup over and finally use up the butter and the brown sugar mixture by scattering over the top of the dough balls. Bake 25 minutes.

I never mind the cleanup, for something this delicious!
Remove from oven, cool 5 - 10 minutes, carefully remove the jelly jar from the center and set aside to cool (do not place the hot jar in a sink of water, it will break!) this jar is very hot.

  1. I'm a big fan of the monkey bread. I try to do it every Christmas morning. I use a box of butterscotch pudding mixed with cinnamon and nuts to sprinkle on the top before baking. Gooey goodness.

  2. Your recipe looks like it is pretty easy and I like Holly's idea of the butterscotch pudding. Butterscotch is Don's favorite flavor next to Hazelnut.
