Go Ahead, Make My Bread
According to Page Six, the gossip section of the craptastic New York Post:
"March 1, 2005 -- EVERYONE knew where Clint Eastwood was going after his "Million Dollar Baby" won four Oscars: to Dani Janssen's Century City apartment. The widow of "The Fugitive" star, David Janssen, has known Eastwood since she was 16 and they were contract players at Universal. Eastwood never misses Janssen's Oscar party if he's in town. Dani, who does all the cooking herself, including her famous "monkey bread," limits the guest list to close friends like Jack Nicholson and Shirley MacLaine."
I just know you have a church potluck to go to one of these days, and I just know that you will want to bring along some monkey bread, so here's the recipe, dear Peacebangers:
3 packages of buttermilk biscuit tubes
1 cup sugar (divided)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
Take 3 packages of buttermilk biscuit tubes (10 per roll) and cut each roll into 4 pieces. Drop roll pieces into 1 cup sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon. drop sugar coated pieces into a well buttered bundt pan (don't squish roll pieces when placing them in the bundt pan).
Put 1/2 cup of the left over sugar/cinnamon mix and 1/2 cup packed brown sugar and 1 cup of butter (2 sticks) into small sauce pan.
Bring this mixture just to a boil, take off heat right away. Carefully drizzle over the roll pieces.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min.
Cool slightly in an upright position, then tip pan over onto a plate to remove monkey pull-apart bread.
Tear apart with hands, screech and lope around the room while eating. Smear butter on self. Screech some more.
