Gorilla Bread with Cream Cheese Centers
This is a variation on Monkey Bread. It is SO MUCH MORE FATTENING because of the cream cheese centers! You can add almost anything to this easy bread. Nuts, raisins, cranberries… just layer it in with the dough balls.
4 cans refrigerated biscuits
1 8 oz. block of cream cheese
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/2 Tablespoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a bundt pan.
Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a medium sized plastic bag.
Cut the block of cream cheese into 32 squares.
Cut the biscuits into quarters, place a piece of cream cheese int the center of each quarter and roll into balls. Put a few pieces at a time in the bag. Shake to coat.
Arrange pieces in the bottom of the greased pan. Continue layering until half the biscuit pieces are coated and in the pan.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour half over the layered biscuits.
Continue layering the biscuits in the pan and pour the remaining half of the liquid over the top.
Bake for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Pull apart and watch it disappear.
