This last Friday the talk was all about the weather here in Nebraska. We were in store for a huge snow storm over the weekend, and everyone was preparing for a couple of days all snuggled up at home. And what is a weekend at home without something a little sweet, right? That's what I thought, so I decided to start early with a sweet brunch.
Miraculously, Ella slept until 8:30 am this morning. So, I popped out of bed at 8 to start some delectable monkey bread. The prep is relatively easy, but a bit time consuming, so be sure you have 15 to 20 minutes to prep this puppy, (or should I say monkey, whatever, lame joke).
|Begin by cutting the refrigerated biscuits into fourths. Roll them in sugar, cinnamon and a little nutmeg. Then place them into a greased bundt pan.
|Bring 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of corn syrup to a boil.
|Pour it over the biscuits....
|Bake it for 28-30 minutes
|And, oh baby, look at what you've got!
|A sweet treat for a snowy winter morn.
So, even though we got a mere two inches of snow today (other parts of NE got 17 inches!), it still felt good to stay inside, eat sweets and get cozy with my fam. What are your snow day traditions?
