The ease of store-bought biscuits:
One of my very favorite convenience foods in the grocery store is the tube biscuits you find in the refrigerated section.
You know the ones.
They're the little devils that, even though you know the "pop" is coming when the seal on the tube is released, somehow you're still startled when it does.
It happens to me every. single. time. LOL
Feel free to personalize this recipe.
This recipe uses two tubes of canned biscuits. You can use your favorite brand, variety, or whatever canned biscuit happens to be on sale at the time.
The only other ingredients you'll need are some cinnamon sugar, raspberry jam, melted butter, almond extract, and some blanched slivered almonds.
Or, if you're not a fan of nuts, you can, by all means, leave those out.
Of course, you may always substitute another nut for the almonds depending on what you have on hand or whatever your favorite nut might be.
Does a springform pan need to be used?
You'll notice in the video that I made this Raspberry Spice Monkey Bread in a springform pan.
However, if you don't have a springform pan, you can also make this monkey bread in a bundt pan if that's what you have in your kitchen.
Tips for making this in a bundt pan:
The only change I suggest you make if using a bundt pan is to spray the pan liberally with baking spray.
Next, drizzle a little bit of the jam mixture into the bottom of the pan and sprinkle with almonds before layering the biscuits and drizzling in the remainder of the jam.
Since anything baked in a bundt pan needs to be turned out before serving, this way you'll still have some of the jam and the almonds on the top of the monkey bread when you're ready to serve and it will be pretty.
Should you have any questions for me regarding this technique, please don't hesitate to leave me a comment or contact me. I'll be happy to help in any way I can.
How long will this recipe take to make from start to finish?
It will take approximately 10 minutes to prepare, and 50-60 minutes to bake.
Factor in a little cooling time before serving and you're looking at approximately 1½ hours, so please plan accordingly.
